I have recently tried this game and I am very impressed. This is the first kickboxing-style VR game that allows the player to kick without using any additional sensors or trackers, and the way you implemented that is very clever. With that in mind, I have a few suggestions that I believe could further improve the game.

Firstly, the player character should have forearms to block attacks with. This is how one would block attacks in real striking-based unarmed combat. As a martial arts practitioner, I can tell you that the way blocking in the game works right now, with just the hands, is quite unrealistic. But it's unrealistic in a way that makes it more difficult than in real life, because the player has a smaller area to work with when blocking.

Secondly, there should be an option to customise the difficulty by adjusting the opponent's parameters, such as punching speed and agsressiveness, like in The Thrill of the Fight. Right now, the AI opponents punch about as fast as a real martial artist would, which means the player needs to have the reflexes of a trained martial artist in order to see attacks coming. While this is not that big of a deal for players who have martial arts training, those who don't need to have some kind of power fantasy.

And finally (this is more of a nitpick that a gameplay suggestion, but I'll just throw it in anyway), the opponent's punches and kicks should stop when they make contact with the player character. Again, The Thrill of the Fight comparison. In The Thrill of the Fight, punches don't go through the player as if they were a ghost. When an opponent's punch hits the player or the player blocks it, the punch stops travelling and the opponent pulls their fist back into a fighting stance. It should work the same way in Fighting Clans. That would make the strikes and blocks seem like they have some weight behind them and it would make the game more immersive. The lack of immersion because of this is the most obvious with roundhouse kicks, when the opponent kicks you and then they follow through with a spin, with their leg basically passing through the player.

Left handed mode doesn't work. Even if I toggle it on, the sword and pistol are attached to the right controller. I have to hold the right controller in my left hand to be able to play.
