A certainly acceptable categorization. In my competition days there were schools, The Crazy Dragons come to mind, where their promotion was geared around their sparring success and tournament wins. There are today what I refer to as tournament specialists. That is not to say as an individual ages in the art he/she's focus does not change but at present they are in it for the sport as say a boxer is. I think that for many the categories we find ourselves in change as we progress. Just my thoughts.
