Re: Competition again!!!
The YWF is a pretty large organization and probably for legal purposes its also important that its members have the appropriate safety equipment in training. Also I think they are on the right path by removing dangerous techniques for sparring. What is really amazing about Yoseikan Budo is that everything flows seamlessly so you can safely change from karate to judo to aikido. And in regards to body gear... well we all have to go to work the next day.
