    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Please rate our sparring aliveness!!

    This is a sparring video of me during my black belt test 5 years ago. I'm the one closest to the camera at the beginning. Please rate the aliveness of our sparring. Extra input will be appreciated! Thank you :)

    Well, I saw leg kicks in the 2nd video but not the first one. Did you not allow them?

    I don't know which one you are, but the slightly smaller guy was pulling his mawashi-geris to the point they were barely landing. Could have been fatigue, given the bb grading, but it looked like a trained/drilled technique more suited to points sparring. He was kicking with his leg entirely divorced from his hip.

    I still don't understand how you can have aliveness without reasonable contact.

    Second vid was a kyokushin school, I think. Leg kicks/body kicks... no punches to the face, so while it's more alive, it is limited to a degree.

    Watch how the guys in the second video move when kicked because of the contact.
    Look at the different angles they discover.

    Delicious.

    Your school, I give a 4. The other school, which looks like Kyokushin, probably around the same ... that didn't look like hard contact to me.

    guy in the second vid is kinda baller for wearing glasses while sparring.

    its not so much the aliveness, but the lack of good technique that i noticed in the first vid. if you are a BB, find a new school.

    Thanks for the reply. Keep them coming. I'm the guy in the first video with his back towards the camera at the beginning. Tell me if anything was wrong with my sparring back then (though I don't spar like this anymore).

    Couple of diff things. It didn't help that the guy you were sparring was a points sparrer.The super man punch -kiai -turn his back towards you and saunter off like you would be dead irl was a bad habit and not the only example of this bad habit.

    You don't keep your hands up when striking. You keep them up,(sorta),and chin down when covering but as soon as you start striking your hands drop and your heads wide open (chin up) but the guy you were fighting was too busy looking good.

    You don't seem to put any power into the techniques so while it is alive-ish,theres no power and is more a game of tag.To counter you still need to practice in a way that reflects the random strikes of fighting but with no power its hard to practice how to fight seriously.So its not hard sparring,its light sparring. Weather thats good or bad depends on what you thought it was and what the rule set allowed.
