Ah. I knew that. When people use the term "full-contact" though, they're usually referring to people hitting each other full-force.

When they fight in France, the usually do it under the kickboxing federation, so knees are not allowed also.
On the note of K-1.... I too noticed that for the most part they do not allow a full clinch and any take downs are not allowed... then occasionally cung le fights san shou matches with throws allowed...
