"Konck-down" in karate can be pretty painfull.
But photographig souch event is very dificult. The photographer must run around "tatami" following the movments of figters and judges which also run around looking fot the best point of view.

Having the Red opponents face/full body in would have given more definition to this action shot as you could visually follow the knockdown through to the end. On a lighter note, Mr Blue looks like he's breakdancing Smile NB. Those of you who don't know. A Tatami is the Japanese word for a mat.
Thanks 4 the share.

ive had plenty of that, down on the mat but you would have had more ipon if you had had the red fighter fully included in frame and the squatter out, the one hitting the ground is a good catch, possibly from the wrong side because the body configuration is confusing but the other side of the story is the scorer of the point who is pretty much cropped out. for me its necessary to include both opponents. i also think you could have used a slightly slower speed and allow a bit of movement, or even better loads of movement

hitting peak of the action is always difficult no matter which sport but if its any help i would suggest avoiding tight crops in camera, give yourself more space and crop later. fascinating for me because i have faught competitively Wado-ru Karate many- many years ago.

nice try and the lightings quite effective and colour balance
