    when I was in karate, we did both and I always hated point sparring, because I sucked at it.... I think hard contact is much better and more realistic. At the last karate tournament I was in, a guy beat me at point sparring, but I talked him into going semi-knockdown as well which he thought he was going to kick my ass. I think he was surprised when I shrugged every single punch or kick he swung at me, and I only had to land a few keen shots before he just gave up.

    Competitive light contact sparring translates to fighting, like basketball translates to rugby.

    Sure you can crossover 'tween the legs swoop to the hoop and run your mouth, but can you run the ball?

    LC is almost all about speed. I think it can have some small benefit if you are mentally capable of acknowledging hits, particularly the ones you recieve, but you are probably better off with other training methods.

    I am a little concerned about those of you who keep saying that Light Contact is about speed.
    Its about control.
    To say that light contact is about speed and that you need to have faster strikes makes it sound like fast strikes have no power, they are just flicks.

    Unfortunately, that's exactly how it ends up, Ronin. Many people don' t have control, they just don't have any power in the first place.

    I found it detrimental to be constantly working on control (and by that I mean always holding back so you don't hurt your partner) because it trains your body to pull strikes when you really don't want to -- I think as a big guy this really hurts my striking game --> having nobody else big to spar with that can take licks

    When light sparring, where I train, we typically go light to the head and hard to the body. That should help as far helping you to maintain a practical strategy throughout different levels of contact.

    I find it difficult going between sparring for boxing and sparring for kuh-rotty. In boxing all sparring is full contact, and in kuh-rotty it's mixed contact. And unfortunately my boxing is what suffers, I'm constantly told "come on hit me like you mean it". Which really sucks because sometimes I am hitting as hard as I can. I hate having to pull punches and kicks in karate. I think it takes away from the workout.
