Choi Kwang Do, the delusion continues
There are a few other good threads on the delusions of this style, but a recent article in Combat magazine (UK only???) deserves its own thread. I swear this guy is just begging for more attention by the likes of bullshido.
FULL CONTACT SPARRING.... AN ALTURNATIVE!
Can you guess what it is yet? ....
Premise: Full Contact sparring is bad. We don't do it because you get injured.
"...doesn’t solve the problem either, since semi contact often turns into full contact due to lack of control or too much ego! "
"Non-contact but wearing the bag gloves just in case there is a slip; the other guy is blocking those punches. "
It’s getting more serious at Gold Belt level – moving around as in a street fight with your gloves on and punching and kicking real close to the body, whilst your sparring partner is blocking what you are doing.
..and all this from a guy who's supposedly teaching street-real combat. His site is well worth a look although the dedicated bullie should be forearmed with a sick-bag because if you missed the other threads what you are about to see will make you sick inside. My favourite "On the Street" episode (same guy):
