    I bet on Chung Lee. Lost some cash last time. Hopefully this time he’ll get his revenge.

    So, a young guy that actually trains in combative martial arts vs an old man that doesn't.

    How you got the latter as favourite?

    No offense taken now... and here I thought the challenge would also have "a purse"... Bob Wall challenged me for $4million according to Martial Art Sport Museum curator Gary Lee. I considered until I found out I could be charged with senior abuse. Skillful trap avoided.

    FACT vs. FICTION

    First off you cant arbitrarily declare a 100 man Kumite is not a tournament when a tournament is defined as a contest between multiple competitors.

    Your framework of understanding is seemingly based upon an erroneous assumption. Yes, while some Karateka who view a 100 man Kumite as a test of endurance it nonetheless can be and is under Society of Black Dragon utilized in the Asian cultural traditional manner. Multiple people are in competition with each other in attempting the same feat (i.e. fighting and defeating 100 or 60 combatants).

    Each competitor is measuring their performance vs the next person facing the same challenge. The 56 man knockouts argument you propose is done according to western cultural tournament interpretation which is rules of single elimination. This round-robin jousting format is not true in the case for all Kumites.

    Each fighter has 60 opponents to fight. Scores are tallied by wins vs defeats by which to determine the final winner. Some participants cannot complete the sixty fight requirement and thus are eliminated. Some fight the sixty bouts but lose more matches compared to another competitor doing likewise. These tournaments can be held and conclude over a period of one day or up to 18 months. I hope this dispels the assumptions and faulty conclusion.
