Shidokan Bare Knuckle Rules

Knockdown Karate is popular in many countries. The version most used is that of Kyokushin. All leg and knee strikes to legs, torso and head and no hand strikes to head. Grabbing/holding is not allowed. Scorring is based on effective strikes that either knockdown or visibly hurt the opponent. Shidokan's version of Knockdown allows grabbing and throwing and in some causes submisson. Adding the clinch and throws to ruleset changes things and is a great way to prepare students for practical combat.
