I figured people were tired of seeing it. This is from a TD here in Atlanta a couple years ago. It is edited for that goofy effect because I pulled the headshot. You can still see what happens when you cover the body and go straight back.

Also, I notice that both of you tend to stand straight up. Try getting lower in your stance i.e. bend you knees not your back. I know this is hard to explain on line, but if you get lower you extend your reach. It has to do with the mechanics of the shoulder.
When you block are you allow to strike your opponents arms and legs? People tend to throw fewer punches if they draw back sore arms.
All in all I'm not trying to pick on you. You asked for critique so there it is from my prospective.

- Maybe Kyokushin soon...
Im just curious, even with pure kyokushin rules why were your hands not protecting your head? Dont people aim for the head all the time in your art? I see that all the time in most of the kyokushin highlights I have seen.

No punches incoming to the head. So they feel there is no need to protect it... they will see a kick coming...
