    Sports Karate (TippyTappy) - Dimitris Triantafyllis

    Dimitris Triantafyllis

    The name is a big name in the world of sports karate. Former WKF gold medalist etc.

    I've always loved watching his matches, and i stumbled across his training video and it was goooood....

    YouTube- ‪BEST OF DIMITRIS TRIANTAFYLLIS‬‎

    YouTube- ‪triantafyllis - training day‬‎



    Just wanted to share how tippy tappers really train hard to be good tippy tappers.

    Btw the heavy punches in the matches most probably are fouls (besides the ones where the opponent does not defend himself, then it is his fault, so you get the point) but he still won in the end, it is all part of the sport.

    Big respect for such a dedicated sportsman.

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.

    We live in a post UFC 1 world. It is actually easier to find ammy and pro mma venues than it is to still locate these Original Karate Kid with Ralph Macchio style tourneys. This guy is training like a beast to do outdated light contact point sparring against TMA hobbyists. It's retarded.

    His opponents, like him are mostly paid athletes who represent their country, not "TMA hobbyist". Light contact sparring is not "outdated" this is sports karate. And no, sports karate tournaments are still held very regularly all over the world, just that most of them are not advertised much outside of the dojos that practice it, because it is not made for entertainment.

    This video is pretty hilarious. Highlights for me were him going spastic while connected to what looked like a cross between a leg curl machine and a polygraph, and the bit towards the end where he was "squatting". I say "squatting" because I can't think of what to call it. He unracks a bar that's too heavy for him, does a couple of nor-even-1/4 squats, then drops the bar and makes a tiger face.

    LoL? Competitions, in Europe, are still widespread and well attended by competitors. A local competition still draws around 200-300 competitors. In most countries sports karate is still far more widespread than MMA.

    Btw the heavy punches in the matches most probably are fouls (besides the ones where the opponent does not defend himself, then it is his fault, so you get the point) but he still won in the end, it is all part of the sport.
    According to the judges movement, flags, they were all counted as points.

    It's simple really, sports karate still has many members which also means there are many people doing that type of competition. Any sport when done at a high level, and this guy is competing at world level, requires a lot of training.

    Though I believe that sport karate has its place among the general population that don't compete in kickboxing, MMA, boxing, or knockdown, it is not for those who want heavy contact. Most of my adult students don't waste their time with "tag" sparring, as they get disqualified for excessive contact. And that gets very expensive, very quickly as the tourneys are pretty pricey.

    The only thing that really burns me about point sparring is that most who compete in that arena fo competition think they are bad mama-jammas. I had oneof my students get told last week by one of the local point sparring bigshots that those of us who compete in full contact are just brawlers and that we have no technique. It is because her husband and sons are all point fighters. I guess they will always live in their own little world.
