    If you absolutely have to point spar....

    You should at least have the decency to be embarassed about it.

    Wow, I really thought that it would be widely panned for being point sparring. But anyway, the guy who went on his ear was a white belt former TKD, there were no other senior white/yellow belts so he asked could if he go in with the green/blue, so fair play to him in that regard. It was Joe (the guy with red hair) that got disqualified for constantly grabbing while striking. And Frankie (back kick guy) won with that technique as the other guy couldn't continue. *****, not that that kick doesn't hurt (it fucking does), but that was the final match, you suck it up fight through it.

    Most of the point tournaments I went too, your guys would have been kicked out for hitting ( a badge of honor in my opinion)

    What actual ruleset was that under?

    Normal point sparring rules, they held back and pulled their punches for the most part only "deviating from the script", so to speak on those occasions.

    Specifically when some point sparring joker thought he would pull out the "d34dilest" technique in his arsenal, it seems.

    The Liu Kang impersonator deserved a cracked skull.

    I have a habit of doing that. I did that once and got my finger caught in someone's rolled-up sleeve, and when they pulled back it broke my ring finger at the middle knuckle.

    The response to the flying side kick was hilarious and I liked the back kick to the kidney. Good stuff, dude.

    Most of the time I saw myself as virtuous for pulling my d3adly punches millimetres from my opponents' faces.

    Two things changed this:

    i. Sparring blokes who didn't pull their punches
    ii. Sparring blokes who needed to be hit to improve their character
