    Ghost attempts karate

    So I went to a semi-contact (this means light gloves and shin pads) kyokushin tournament. It went slightly less horribad than anticipated. You may have many questions such as "why are your hands down", and "how can you suck so much". My answer is that I have no idea. Your brain kinda shuts off once punches start flying. No matter how much you have sparred.


    First fight I am in blue gear. I won this one. Not the cleanest of victories, but I'll take it.


    My second fight. This time in red gear. I am still gassed as fuck from fight one, and this guy is one of my teammates. He is A LOT better than I am. And larger. Because I got bumped up to middleweight!


    My third fight for 3rd place after losing in the semifinals. Yeah I lost, but I felt more comfortable and technically stronger (at least in the beginning) of this fight than I did in the fight I won.

    Yeah looks OK from a first fight.

    Now the secret to winning,at the beginning a fight is determined by who throws more straight punches and cardio.

        You just need more time with hands and feet in your face and liver. I saw more than a few moments when your technique looked good and you moved with purpose and confidence. All you need to do remember those moments and stretch them out over the whole match.

        The sadist in my really enjoyed watching the first video. So much awkwardness and lack coordination, neither one of you really got into your grooves I bet there is a German word for "being embarrassed for someone else who is obviously not fulfilling their potential and having a bad time in a public sporting event".

        All that said it looked like a blast.

        but again ... what ever... you are a white belt doing white belt stuff. There is not a problem with that as long as next time you don't make the same mistakes.

But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."

            The internet supports that ... to some degree anyway... I was surprised.

            Nice.

              Heh. I think all of the uncontested leg kicks that I threw were the real difference. Also, actual fights are a lot more exhausting than sparring. Those first two minutes took more out of me than six or seven rounds with the guys I normally train with ever has.

                  I see what you were trying to do by keeping your hands low, but you really should've just gone all the way and put them behind your back.

                      There were some nice leg kicks in there, some decent punch and kick combos, some good movement. Like I said you had moments in each video where you moved well, with purpose, and to positive effect.

                      Your last two opponents were very kind to you.
                      *edit*
                      Let it be known, I too would be getting kicked almost at will and moved around like a toy against those guys, in that rule set. It builds character and your buddies highlight vids.

                          He seemed to know his way around a headkick. I still think he was being nice... possibly in respect for the rule set.

                            Ruleset was okay with knocking people out. He tried to full on knee me in the face at one point. Who knows. He may have not gone 100% and he may have been tired. In the end it doesn't really matter because he still kicked my ass.

                              Nice work, keep training and keep competing. A lot of getting better at competition is competing, getting over/being able to control the stress/adrenaline/nerves etc. so you can express the technique you have. Unlike sparring, you can be dealing with the unknown (opponents you don't know) in competition.
