I Watched Karate

Today (Sunday, March 8th), I watched karate tournament with my friend for our magazine article.

The tournament was held by karate club in my university and it was great because it was the first time I watched karate match in real life. I also found that there was team kumite.
What is kumite anyway? 
In karate tournament there are two main categories: kumite and kata. Kumite is sparring. Kata is movement demonstration.
When an official told me that there is team kumite, I imagine a group of 4 people fight against a group of 4 people, all on one tatami. I was wrong (of course!). The sparring is still one on one. To make it clear, I suggest you to watch YouTube video on team kumite because I can’t explain it properly.
