    Honestly I'm not a big fan of Shoto kumite. It's fun to spar but the comp is kind of boring to watch compared to Kyokushin, imo.
    Nowadays there is A LOT more motion, even if they are not engaging that much. People keep jumping back and forth much more and shuffling much less. They look like f***ing energizer bunnies. They need truckloads of cardio resistance.
    The funny thing is that before my back/hip/ankle finally crapped out on me I could generally outlast most of those jumping-about dudes. I conserved energy and could go a whole sparring class fighting one guy after the other as each burned out and never resting myself. But damn me if I could do any of all that jumping or high-movement evasion. If I charged forward and the guy sidestepped it was easier for me to look for another guy to spar in that general direction than try to bounce back and keep up with the first one.

    Or had a bad-ass arm sleeve tattoo. Those are strictly for bad-asses only.
