A friend and I were discussing the rulesets for kyokushin karate and tkd the other day. All I know of kyokushin is what I have seen on youtube (not a very reliable resource) and I was wondering what the differences are from a ruleset perspective between kyokushin karate sparring and wtf(olympic) tkd sparring. I know olympic style tkd sparring gets bagged out a lot but to the naked eye the rules seem similar, except it appears leg kicks may be legal in kyokushin. Can anybody explain the difference or better still is there anybody who has sparred by both rulesets and can explain the differences in the rules and the aproach to sparring in each. Thank you in advance.
