    Point Sparring is not stupid

    Now that bullshido is gone. I would like to say that point sparring is not stupid. Point sparring is actually like real combat if you think about it. So in this thread I will call it point fighting. Point fighting is very useful. I'll use this comparison. Kids who play tag get alot of practice running and that practice running can be transferred to track it's the same thing with point sparring. Point sparring even helps with self defense. There was an excellent article on Map comparing point sparring to self defense situations. I'll look for it later and post it on this thread.

    let me ask you this then...

    If you wanted to be a good runner would you, instead of running, practice playing tag alot?

    Point sparring is a limited excersize - often used in conjunction with unrealistic techniques.

    I couldn't agree more, in fact I heard a rumour that Pride FC was going to start using a point sparring system (ala The Karate Kid) for all future events starting with Bushido on Monday.
