The guy on the right was from Anchorage, Alaska yet for some reason competed in team kumite with the Arizona team. Go figure. He was really good though. He ended up coming in second for the individual men's kumite. Apparently, it is very possible to lose a fight by getting too many penalties for excessive contact. In the end, he was unscathed whereas the "winner" had tissue stuffed up his nose and an ice bag over his head.
