    You mean with no rank in kyokushin? I really doubt it. You best bet is to get ahold of whoever/whatever organization runs their tournaments.

    Would you expect to get put against black belts?

    I'm assuming that you've been training KK for quite some time already.

    I don't see why you wouldn't be able to compete in Kyokushin tourneys/ matches though. It doesn't say anything about it at this KK website:

    Are reffering specificaly to the fact that you have competed proffesionaly? Most tourney's have a proffesional division these days. I guess it depends on the organisers or your local athletic comission.
