    i hope this isnt too late because i just registered but...
    in TKD sparring, the idea isnt to KILL your partner. the idea is to score points. have any of you ever fought in a TKD match before that depends on kicking 90% of the time? if that equipment was not there, there fighters would be out of the math a minuet into the first round with broken ribs and so forth. same with the hands. hands are kept down because they take a beating. this isnt K1 folks, these athletes use equipment to keep them in the match and to keep their careers going. how long does a k1 fighter last? 2-3 years before he's all beat up. thats not the point of taekwondo sparring. its a philosophy.

    Heh, Isn't REAL fencing a game of 'tag' anyway... if you get tagged through the heart/eye, what more can you do ;).

    Though, since you actually have real experience in this subject, you don't have to give a rat's ass about my opinion...

    That's part of the problem. The idea of sparring should be to simulate a fight. It needs to be done in such a way that people can remain safe from injury for further training, but the purpose should still be to safely simulate a fight.

    if that equipment was not there, there fighters would be out of the math a minuet into the first round with broken ribs and so forth.
    That's absurd. Kickboxers hit each other full power without all that gear and don't end up with broken ribs in the first minute. :rolleyes:

    this isnt K1 folks
    Yes. Most of these guys wouldnt last a minute in a K1 fight.

    how long does a k1 fighter last? 2-3 years before he's all beat up.
    Cite please.

    Oh, and if this is a troll job... 8/10. After all, you got me!

    Heh. And, you know, I kind of started this thread to defend Olympic TKD a bit, but TKDCritic just busted out some of the worst BS claims of "traditional" arts. Without protective gear they'd be breaking ribs with every kick, dude!!! T3H DEADLY!!!

    Sh'yeah, right.
