    That's good to know. I'm really interested to see how they condition and spar. I'm gonna try and check it out tomorrow or sat.

I actually found that I got less hurt in full contact tournament fighting because the fighters are more careful about their strikes; there's less flailing.
    What he said. When you're un-padded, especially on your knuckles, you become pretty aware of the fact that you want to hit soft targets direct and hard to stop a guy as quickly as possible. Conditioning is painful. I can honestly say that Kyokushin classes hurt more on a nerve level than any kickboxing or BJJ class I've attended. I mean, getting hit in the head with gloves will make a person dizzy, and may knock you out, but it doesn't really "hurt" in the same sense as taking knuckles, bare shins and knees to the body and legs (and occasionally a kick to the head), which is entirely what traditional Kyokushin is all about.

    I think that Lindz meant: How can you defend/train against bareknuckle headshots?

    All the tournements/styles that you listed go "gloved" when headshots are integrated in the sparring, except Kudo but they have the "spacehelmets".
