    I've just watched this in more detail - it looks like both the guys in this are dan grades. If so the quality of the sparring is terrible. Very few kicks and badly executed. I've seen better sparring from more junior grades.

    Considering that GKR is suppose to be derived from Shotokan (as well as Goju Ryu), I was expecting more...

    your 100% correct. i got sold GKR when i was 16 as a shotokan / Goju style cross and was interested. quickly learning that they did take from both styles but didn't think how they melded and it has watered down to a 100% tournament and money making business
