That was bad-ass. I'm assuming head strikes with hands are against the rules?

The shows no longer look like fake "WWE" works anymore.

They're definitely experimenting with the rules. I like that the chest-protectors are no longer gigantic. Now strikes to the body not only mean points, but can potentially put one's opponent down.

Definitely getting better. It seems to me that once they've simplified the gear and made it into kyokushin with a greater emphasis on throws and ring-outs, they'll converge with what Yuan Zumou has been teaching as "Shoubo" for the last 20 years:

That looks great. Would be great fun to be in that audience. Anyone else think the ref's outfits are cool? Haha!

I thought it was pretty cool! Every type of combat doesn't always have to be full contact rules. It is a good way to get in the mix and be able to show/practice techniques. I like the style vs. style aspect of it.
Thanks for posting!
