Nah mine was just standard karate where the judges messed up the rules. They were doing the kids tournament before us, so they bled the rules in to ours since we were just yellow belt at the time. Sensei did his after us and they were all good for shots to the face.
Me and my best mate would train hard enough, getting caught with big straight counters to the face. I'm going to my first ever tournament in martial arts expecting it to be awesome...and that happens?
Worst thing was, I watched Best of the Best as my pump up video the night before lmao. Dudes with broken bones and cut up faces and shit.
