    Well, it's a place to try things which you're not as comfortable with, cause you're less likely to get rocked. On the other hand, it makes it very difficult to ippon someone in a no head punch ruleset.

    A couple matches the judges scored it like semi contact, and gave a wazari for any kick to head. I don't know if they kept that throughout though.

    Here are my two fights from the 13th Annual Northwest Kyokushin challenge, April 13th 2013.

    The win: (decision)


    And the loss: (Ippon by way of double Wazari)

    Well done . Your opponent in the second fight certainly moves well what was his rank ? (I saw the white belt)

    Wow, that looks rough!! It would be great for street fighting if street fighters weren't headhunters. And eventually you are going to get a blown out knee fighting like that. Have you picked out your cane yet?
