Even guys like Ernesto Hoost and Peter Aerts came from Kyokushin derived schools that mixed in training for the gloved fighting
source? not that i am trying to prove you wrong since I am not certain but im pretty sure Hoost started out in Savate and Aerts has always done muay thai of the dutch flavour.
Slightly off topic, but has Hoost fought outside of k1? I only saw a few k1 fights.

Hoost, Aerts etc trained in Mejiro Gym or one of its decendents in Holland. Mejiro Gym is a direct child of Kenji Kurosaki's (Kyokushin co-founder) Japanese kickboxing gyms.
After fighting (and losing by TKO due to a cut over the eye) in Thailand under Thai rules Kurosaki was basically thrown out of Kyokushin by Oyama for "shaming" the style. Oyama at his finest retardation level on that one. Kurasaki and Fujihira (one of teh other Kyokushin fighters who fought in Thailand) both switched to kickboxing competition. Kurosaki as coach and Fujihira as a fighter. Generally Kurosaki is known as the founder and father of Japanese kickboxing and influenced a lot of other Kyokushin clubs around the world, notably in Holland to go the same way.
Thats what I meant by Kyokushin derived dojo - not stating they do kata or anything, but the original instructors were Kyokushin fighters who switched to MT style training .Sociopaths are people too.

Nice clip of Oyama, thanks for posting it. Someone should have told him that the head isn't a target in Kyokushin (lol). I liked that inner hammer fist to the gut, what a shot.
This HAS been posted several times: No head in tournies, head ok in dojo. More of less; in Utah we went to the head and after several years Sensei got head gear and gloves. We'd spar often just to the body, too. In Hawaii they tended to beat the **** out of each other's legs and throw a lot - at least I got thrown a lot!"Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez
