    Yep most do have it. Kyokushin is the only one that I know of that doesn’t allow punches to the head but they still do it in training just not competition

    Eh... Traditional Karate, including all modern Karate organisations allow punches the face. Kyokushin branches are the only one that don't.. Even they hold some tournaments with face punching and gloves.

    So if traditional Karate does not allow punches to the face, then canadians don't play hockey and Russians never wrestle.123
