    It's not very visible, but you can see a few welts on the side and at my hip. That was also the elbow that got hit, and I was curious if there was any visible swelling to it.

    It was also a good testament to how, though my opponent tried to fight with a weapon in each hand, he struck primarliy with one. My left side was just fuckin' thrashed.

    still, I respect the idea of full contact training...you know about the dogbrothers, right? I wouldn't necessarilly go out and practice full contact like this, especially when the weapons your pal used were quite...how should I say...impractical or unrealistic in modern combatives. (unless you've made enemies with the local kendo club.) Esp. when the tools he used represent bladed weapons. From the looks of those welts on your obliques...you'd be a couple of feet shorter.

    Hehe, the tools he used didn't represent ****. I don't believe in symbolism; I was fighting as I would against a man armed with bokkens =P

    But ja, when I finsihed my match, one of my first thoughts was "I guess the dogbrother's aren't so crazy afterall".

    Granted, we weren't going hard enough, but with a helmet and gloves, I can see how you can practice pretty hard contact with kali.

    yeah...maybe with rattan sticks, but I'd hate to be hit with a kamagong or hard wood pole. It's definitely a method to train, but it only teaches you so much. It may increase some attributes of a fight, but it won't improve your technique, or style....and man, it's all about style.
    I don't care if I win or lose, at least the spectators would be able to vouch for me..."man, that guy got rocked...but goddamned if he didn't look good."

    Hehe, if I thought like that, I'd still be in TKD.

    As you can see by the pics, my form is ugly as sin =P

    ...not that bad. It's a hard thing to judge with a long reach weapon. I don't have a fucking clue as to how to defend against one, except for to run or throw something in their face and close the gap before they can hit.

    So if you were fighting as you would against a guy with bokkens, shedding all symbolism... Did you try and grab the bokkens on the 'bladed' section?
