    When you sparred full contact -you had to wear safety equipment like gloves and stuff. Did you have to buy that through West Wind? -Would they allow you to buy your own outside?

    Sorry, just curious.

    the non-contact gear we had to buy, although we were allowed to buy it outside the system, we were told that it would look bad for us to do so.....another way of showing loyalty to the system I guess.

    The full contact was provided for you at the time of your test or for practice.....it was similar to fencing gear, except the head gear was modified for our protection. that gear remained the property of westwind.

    So how often did students spar, and when did it actually take place? All of the private lessons work to keep students from communicating and affirming what they do or don't actually know, and I have never ever seen anyone hitting anyone else there. Or even looking like they came close (as in, people rarely leave sweaty).

    I always left sweaty....lol. Sparring was not part of our regular trining, it was basically once a year for tournament time, then special classes were set up to get students ready, and of course you had to sparr for purple and blue test. I didnt have to sparr for green or brown.

    Props to you for getting 2 ACL's and continuing training. You are F'n hardcore. In fact, I may PM you to let you in on the secret handshake strictly on that basis.

    I had a partially torn ACL that didnt require surgery, but I was training the day after it happened.

    That may not be quite as hardcore- perhaps I could learn a left handed secret handshake??? :happy2:

    That's a bad sign. The rarity of sparring, not the sweat. Sweat = good. "The more we sweat in peace, the less we bleed in war" - Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit

    Once you get the basics down to where you are comfortable with them, sparring should be a regular activity.

    Of course, not everybody likes getting punched in the face. But, if you take a grappling style, it won't happen as often. :)

    Judo, BJJ, Sambo, Wrestling, etc. They're all good.

    But, I see you are doing Kung Fu now. That's fine, as long as you spar. :)

    Beka's crusade is justified. WW sounds like a terrible case of Bullshido and McDojoism all in one.

    Nikyu, what 'gear' did you need for no contact sparring?

    head protection, gloves, shin gaurds, which also covered the top of the shoes, chest gaurd, mouth piece and a cup....I thought that all was a bit ridiculas as we weren't allowed to make actual contact...the whole set up cost around $200 as I remember. I did get my shoes elsewhere, I wore orthodics for my heel, and I needed high tops, the traditional wrestling shoes worked will for me, but I did have to have them modidied....had a different sole put on to cut down on slipping on the mat which was canvas.
