    "....sparring demo- no rules!" You need rules, quickly! Get some. There are many styles that have good sparring rules.

    Yeah, looked kinda wing chunny to me.

    But I just want to lick their smooth hairless chests.... And I thought I was straight, until now.

    That goes with Monkfg's comment above.

    Pangainoon, hmmm isn't that sometimes called uechi ryu as well? Mixed with shorei ryu.

    Sure, it doesn't resemble the ryukyu pangainoon I've seen. FAIL
    Terrible armbar at 0:33...

    The way they leaned back was the first indicator that they don't spend a lot of time actually fighting with punches to the face.

    How about a little movement off line youngsters? You'll find it helps greatly your counter punching effectiveness.

    Spinning techniques should have the head turning to see the target. Doesn't matter if it's a hand or foot. Spinning back fists and back/side kicks are awesome techniques when done correctly.

    Consider this as advice and not a put down.

    Overall

    Not very impressive for black belts. At least you're in good shape.

    Clearly there are rules, they are just unstated understandings.

    I'd say 'ditch the made up shorei ryu', then drop the flashy stuff and focus on adding force behind your technique like they do in proper Uechi ryu. That would already be an improvement.

    The sparring could be made by (as already mentioned) making choices about the ruleset, but also about wearing protection or not. Now it's something as 'we want to keep it proper karate without protection' but at the same time you guys obviously don't want to hit to the head, and so the techniques on the other parts of the body become quite sloppy.

    O btw, pick up Lebell's offer, in real life he's quite a nice and helpful guy

    They're not old enough to grow sweet mustaches, though.

    If it has grass, play ball. <--- The place of the grass isn't specified.

    Mmmm... I'd hit that.

    By which I mean I'd punch 'em all in the face. Seriously, they'd probably just turn away and cry at the slightest provocation.
