    I disagree about the sparring partner thing. a sparring partner should push you to your limits and you should be pushing back. ive been clocked hard before usually by shots i didnt see coming, although ive only been dropped once in training by a headshot (well and a broken nose but i didnt go down so it doesnt count :p) I find the idea of "i could have hit you but didnt" is a **** way of training because you have to leave it up to the guy you didnt hit to decide. i would rather not give people that option. if someone has holes in their game you need to fill those holes preferably with a fist (or your wang if you do BJJ)

    i mean of course, people who come in swinging for the trees and looking for a KO in sparring are frowned upon. these kind of people dont tend to last because then for their hard work they get to spar with someone like Chapman which is a bit of an ego killer.

    Alex do you think headgear messes with your head movement?

    im probably not the best guy to ask about head movement- it seems every time itry to slip a punch i catch a foot in the mouth- but no, not really. we have guys who fight at k-1, pro boxing and olympic boxing level and it doesnt affect them. good quality headgear will not be that much of a hinderance, although with headgear on you may move slower.

    I feel like my headmovement is worse while I wear it, but I don't think it effects your headmovement without it.

    I asked this during the training for my first MMA fight and was under the impression that if I didn't get hit I wouldn't know where the holes are. My boxing coach is really good and hitting me without hitting me, you know? Same goes for the MT coach. Both of these guys are on levels so far above my skill level in their respective sports that it is ridiculous to see them go even half speed on me. That said, once my 'wang' comes into play I can usually score a takedown or two.

    Don't get me wrong we still hit each other (it is a full contact sport) its just that we're careful to not fully crack each other.

    Help in buying headgear

    Greetings,

    could anybody give any good advice on quality caged headgear (preferably sold in Europe too)? I was offered one with a vinyl/plastic transparent facecage and have no experience with such headgear. I used to train with a metal cage. Is there any difference between the two? The metal cage seems to protect better from accidental strikes to the eyes though...

    Thanks,

    Tonuzaba

    I'll need to ask where we get ours for Yoseikan Budo it has a metal cage in front that protects well but as it's metal you can't really strike hard without gloves :-)

    We use them for full contact empty hand and with 'foam' (that still hurt like hell) weapons so they do protect well.

    I saw some nice ones with a full plastic cage that seem to be strong in the video of hard core Karate style but I don't know were you could get those.
