    I cannot help but think that if you have ‘free’ sparring with weapons and no protective equipment, said sparring must be extremely light contact, unless the weapons are made out of foam.

When I grew up in it we wore cups, no mouthpiece...bareknuckle...no rules..groin kicks were in..just no eyestabs and kicks to the front or side of the knee...refered to as the "blood and guts" era here in Texas...late sixties ...there were no juniors or kids doing it..
    when I started at 12 with Pat Burleson, grown men were throwing me full power on hardwood floors...for real....never got injured, had already done judo a year with Sam Numajiri...in Fort Worth...
    I've heard of Pat Burleson, but can't place him. Sam though I did know-legit Judo guy. He was on the promotion board for my shodan test.

    However, I'll have to call bullshit on "grown men were throwing me full power on hardwood floors...for real....never got injured". Even after a year of kid's judo that just is not realistic.




    As to my background or frame of reference, in the mid seventies I was also senior student in the US to the late Great Grandmaster, Dr. Kim, Dae Shik...one of the five founders of TKD and Judo in the US
    So where and when did Dr. Kim help found Judo in the US? There were Japanese judo dojo in the us back in the '20s.

    I train in isshinryu in a small club that is hosted at a gym. We use the aerobics room and our instructor is very pro Kata. That being said, we do spar with the old style cotton covered hand pads, no feet pads. Contact and aliveness is partner dependant, and I get going pretty hard with the instructor and 2 other higher belted students.

    My view on isshinryu is that it is a 50 -50 venture as far as what your club does and what demands you place on yourself. I believe that 50 percent of fighting is mental, 30 percent athletic and 20 percent technique.

    Mental toughness can be derived from pushing yourself in extreme athletic pursuits. It's no coincidence that Nick Diaz competes in triathlon.

    As an isshinryu ka, it is up to me to practice "hojo undo", so that my body is physically and athletically capable of performing in real combat. With this component of okinawan karate, the basics become much more viable as combat techniques.

    For me Isshinryu basics are a complete enough art to build a self defense system on. Take fumikomi followed by knee smash. Instant devestation! But I am confident in it because I am faithful in gripping exercises and explosive pulling movements with my arm and back and plyometrics with my legs. So I have confidence I can clinch, fumikomi, then knee smash.

    Upper body basic "two biggie punches" is to me a viable technique that i believe is teaching "loading" a hook punch to use full rotational torque in a hook as well as to clear space for it in a clinching situation, my core is trained to be able to explode this movement.

    These are just examples in which what I do in my martial pursuit is complementary to my structured studies.
