I've gotten the chance to fight alot of kyoshukin and shotokan practicioners. They spar like kickboxers, and it's no joke when they hit you.

I seem to recall this clown's site has come up before.

<pause to spit>
Even traditional sport karate still relies solid reverese punches and good kicks -- even if it is tag. Just google George Kotaka and you can see some of his fights. Sport Karate, yes, but good sport karate. None of this Tae Kwon Crap Fu Do.
I'd be interested to see that - from what I can tell, it looks like MT has a definite influence on KK (no surprise considering the 70s fights). Know where I can get any good clips at all?

You must have lost to him in a tournament.

ALrite, luv ya rob -oxo-
Take that bitches... lol
Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment, but I was just checking out some of the websites of people who posted in robby houdini's guest book and, after looking at a few galleries, I was wondering: how come every single kid who does whatever the hell it is they do have about 100 gigantic trophies? Has anyone done this stuff before? Does everybody win?
IMHO Doing martial arts this unbelievably badly and still calling it that, well it doesn't just leave you vulnerable to attack, but warps your character and your mind. Believe it or not, I have never encountered point sparring before, it is just leaving me shocked as hell.
I could totally take that little girl....
