t3i newbe
have the kit lens and 50mm 1.8 II . Which would I use for indoor karate tournaments and why? Will look at lens upgrades later when I get a better understanding.

thanks in advance!

At about 50mm, the kit lens will have an aperture of about f/5.6. In order to get fast shutter speeds, you'd need to use a really high ISO setting.

There are better lenses for what you want to do, but between the two, I thnk you'll get better results from the 50/1.8.
