Kyokushin belt test sparring
Just gonna leave this stuff here for fun. I tested for my brown in Kyokushin two nights ago. Basically, they exhaust you for a couple of hours with calisthenics, body weight exercises, aerobics, endless kicking drills, throws, kata, and THEN they want you to spar against relatively fresh upper belts. I'm the bald fellow with the green belt in these vids. I can pretty much not keep my hands up at this point, but hey, let's spar anyway.

Me vs. Sensei: (he's being particularly nice, methinks)
Anyway, I thought this could be a fun little side journey for the Japanese forum. Comments entirely welcome.
