    Watch the best Japanese decide who are the best and who will be in the running for the spots in the japanese team for the world tournament.

    This year several of the old guard has retired, and there are many new talents competing for their places.

    also this may be the last shinkyokushin all japan, as shinkyokushin next time will apparently arrange it under the banner of the newly formed japanese fullcontact karate organization (part of an attempt to re-unify kyokushin as sport, if not style organization)
    Classic kyokushin rules. No protection. kicks and knees can target anywhere (except groin, throat and the spine), fists and elbows must connect below the neck level only.
    KO=win, several knockdowns= win. if no KO or KD is scored, the fight is judged by domination or (almost always) leads to extension rounds.

    Day 1 (october 19)


    Day 2 (october 20)


    See the countdown clocks on the videos for exact time where you are.


    And now the obligatory "This is shinkyokushin" video:

    and a few fights from the recent Ukrainian shinkyokushin championship, to give an idea of what to expect.
    Basically the trend (or fashion) in shinkyokushin is more towards mobility and footwork, as opposed to "some other" kyokushin organizations that goes more towards standing brow-to-brow, slugging it out. It is funny what the influence of different champions can make for different organizations that otherwise train the same style. It is almost as if these guys use a few famous fighters as models and try to emulate their tactics and movement patterns after them.

    -65 final
    -70 final
    -75 final
    -80 final
    -openweight final

    don't know any Japanese fighters though but I guess ill learn.

    Do judges rarely award waza ari for short kds or sweeps or can you only win by ippon

    not shinkyokushin, but another kyokushin group. But since it really deserves to be seen, i might aswell post it here as creating a separate thread for it.

    Judges award wazari (half point/half win) for short knockdowns. 2 wazari =win. This is common.
    They also give wazari for sweeps immediately followed up with a GOOD "finishing" technique. However the requirement for the finishing technique are so high that it is very rare to see any points actually given out, So sweeps are more a way to show dominance in case of a draw.

    In this final of the 7th world open (is is the shinkyokushin organization, but they had not switched to the new name yet), Toru Okamoto gives a good example of how sweeps can be used to show dominance.

    Live event is over.
    Both days are now up as regular (but very long) youtube videos.
    Same URL as the live broadcast shown in first post.

    There was many good fights (and several poor ones too). But the whole event is about 14 hours. I am not going to go through it and look up times for you :)
    The final was a bit of a letdown. I do not like when the very big guys use their weight (and very little skill) to defeat smaller, fit but much more technical fighters.
