Well over 10 years later, I’ve decided to enter in a kumite competition again. Sports karate is all about the speed and timing, together with a sharp and polish technique and fighting against 17-28 year old is a very difficult challenge.
I’m not sure of the reasons why I’ve decided to enter again in a kumite competition. One of the reasons is to push myself further, test myself and make me train harder with a focused objective in mind.
Another reason is to enjoy the rush of adrenaline you get with kumite. See whether you still “have it” in you. I’m realistic of my possibilities, but one thing is for sure: I don’t compete to lose.
