    No rules when fighting a monk. As long as you don't go too crazy and try to bite them (they then tend to hit back), everyone has an educational time.

    Sanshou rules when sparring another fellow student.

    It depends on which sparring class we are in. In our tournament sparring class we use typical tournament taekwondo sparring rules. We are also doing street sparring this month, which will have some limited rules, including allowing punches to the head.

    Sincerely,

    Knowing it is not enough, we must apply.
    Willing is not enough, we must do.

    All targets allowed. Takedowns encouraged (sweep and impact type primarily). No groundwork done.

    Level of contact varies by individual, overall medium I'd say, some people go more, some less. You usually will go by the lowest common denominator.

    One additional rule is that you are supposed to stop and acknowledge hits that if full force with no gear would at least briefly stun you, the thinking being that in that case the striker would be able to quickly follow up on the stunned opponent. The jury is still out on my feelings about this rule, though it is apparently common fare for asian martial arts.

    Bad bad bad! You don't stop and say "Good hit!" when you're fighting! Your compliment should be returning the favor. =)

    Our house rules:
    - No kicking to the knee
    - No groundwork (concrete floor)

    That's about it; level of contact is mutually agreed on in an ad hoc way (essentially the lower guy sets the pace and the more experienced guy steps up to that).

    Smart people in this class wear cups and mouthguards; the little foam martial arts pads don't slow things down too much.

    the more you restrict your fighting the less you learn, but you must balance the need for quality experience with the appropriate safety margin.

    dont strike the eyes.
    dont strike the front of the throat. you can damage someone's windpipe.
    dont hit the back of the neck. this attacks the back brain(medulla oblongata) and spinal column.
    dont strike the testicles or perineum.
    dont drop anyone on their neck or head.
    dont 'crank' or 'whip' joint attacks

    in general, take it easy on vital points. areas like the temple can be lethal, especially if you fight barehanded.

    always guard your groin, even if the rules prohibit it. dont trust anybody. and accidents happen too.

    if someone loses their temper, end the match. it will just get shitty, and someone may get hurt.

    personally, i never use gear. but that is not for everyone. one could pose a multitude of logical arguements in favor of protective gear, but i feel that any 'armour' is unrealistic, i dont walk around that way. i would however recommend that all involved wear cups. i dont, but that is me, i guard my ****.

    kids should probably wear gear. once again when i was young i didnt, but unless they are pretty hardcore kids, they should have protection, especially the headgear.

    fighting is not like tv or the movies. people cannot take 20 hits and keep fighting. one good shot will ace you. try to restrict more powerful strikes to the torso and legs.

    and always be gentlemen about it. that doesnt mean dont fight, but dont be malicious, people tend to respond in kind.

    peace.
