Drill 20 Man Kumite.pdf
This exercise is inspired by the Mas Oyama's renowned Kyokushin 50 Man, 100 Man, 200 Man, 300 Man, etc. kumite sessions.
This is essentially the same exercise as the 10 Man Kumite drill but it uses several matches with the same people before bringing in a new attacker for the next several matches.
5 individuals are best but if enough can't be found then use the available people again beginning with #1 until 20 matches are completed.
Recording results in a match by match format is strongly recommended for analysis.
A draw is an adverse outcome from a defender's standpoint. Consequently draws are included with the losses in the final tally.
