Define Irony =

Kyokushin - Very Hard sparing.. no gear.. but NO kicks or punches to the face.. GSPs last fight with Baby Jay springs to mind...

Shotokan - Training partners are encouraged to make controlled and focused contact with their opponent, but to withdraw their attack as soon as surface contact has been madeThis allows a full range of target areas to be attacked (including punches and kicks to the face, head, throat, and body) with no padding or protective gloves, but maintains a degree of safety for the participants.

In general, many consider Shotokan to be more "sport" karate than other forms yet Lyoto has made his work in full MMA
