  1. depends what kinda karate it is. All of it is usefull in a fight. its slowly starting to evolve and now that lyoto machida destroyed rashad evans using karate alot of people will see the good side of it

  2. I like the idea of karate getting more positive exposure in the UFC and MMA. Indeed it's time people realize the practicality that was always karate; that' s why it continues to exist. The problem with UFC/MMA is that people have got tied down to this "formula" of boxing, BJJ and Muay thai as being the "best" way to fight; look at the comments by Expose911lies here, same thing I'm talking about.

  3. I think the problem with karate is its context. Like people who want to get good at thai generally go to thailand to train with the absolute best. Maybe holland aswell. But with karate they only see the americanised forms of points karate or something similar rather than seeing the absolute best at karate. I hope people begin to look further to see real karate

  4. ok not to be that guy but shouldn't his feet be closer in sanchin, i mean maybe it's just a difference in style but i know from my training that in shotokan and what i have seen from goju the feet are closer to help defend the groin, but kyokushin might use it's own version.

  5. @toxi87

    Apparently the legs are kept wide to help return straight leg kicks rapidly, sometimes "shadowing" the opponent's leg and striking before your opponent can even return their leg to the original position. At high level kyokushin, this sometimes leads to flurries of back-and-forth leg kicks in rapid succession.
