If you like the training, stay with the training. If you don't like the tournaments, just go to other tournaments. It shouldn't be a problem to participate in kickbox, Muay Thai or MMA tournaments if you want to. If at those Karate tournaments there are certain rules, you either accept them or look for something else.
Yeah I'll continue and see how it goes. At least I won't be let down in the future. In sparring I prefer to go to war and have a great fight as opposed to keeping everything slow and working on jab/body straight. I guess it's something I need to work on myself.
