    Ahhh, but "obscenity", unlike "porn", can be live, happening-right-in-front-of-you. Although, I guess if you were AT the porn shoot... but wouldn't that still be "obscenity" since porn requires a medium by definition?

    Jesus, why am I overthinking this...

    - Point sparing
    All those could be "fights", except maybe point sparring. Assumming the others are competition, the only one I can see being an effective training tool is free sparring. You train to fight, you do not fight to train.

    To take the thread another direction, what about grappling only contests? Are those "fights". To me it depends. IMO, if the ruleset allows moves with the primary purpose to cause injury it's a fight. So olympic style amateur wrestling wouldn't qualifiy, but submission wrestling would.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
