comment Should I avoid open-handed blocks in sparring?
Based on experience, you've got greater chance of injuring your hands when blocking with open hand, as compared to closed fist. How great the chances are depends greatly on your style, skill, speed and technique. There's no 'should' about blocking open hand. Do what is comfortable, and feels safe to you and your partner.

comment Why are traditional karate gi's white?
The question doesn't blame anything on anyone, regardless of how silly I may think it is. The comment about the use of coloured gis in sport martial arts is an example that I can understand the reasoning for the colour of the gi.
