Body contact sparring techniques
I was sparring the other day with my brother and have a few questions and need some feedback. The ruleset I am going is standup body contact only(the tournament I'm going is FC body and grappling).
So for body contact I mostly target for the lower abs and sides just above the hip bone(Kidneys?). I found it very effective this way: we start both in orthodox stance, I quickly switch to southpaw while throwing low right hook to kidney.
Also, both in orthodox, I paw at his rear hand with my rear hand, and step to outside while throwing rear uppercut to lower abs. When I step BTW to his outside I end up in southpaw so I paw at him with my right and throw uppercut with the left.
Hope to have some video up soon of the sparring and those two techniques so you can all critique.
Any suggestions on body contact only would be appreciated.

the kidneys are in your back, actually. On the right (their right) is the person's liver, and on the left is... stuff.
edit: body punches to the sides of the abs are good because people tend to neglect their obliques... and there's the liver of course. Straight shots to the solar plexus are always good too of course.

Punch the arms, also if they have there hands in a good boxing guard you may be able to sneak in a shovel hook under their elbow.

It's all about the solar plexus, liver, or floating ribs.SON OF ODIN

I just keep head hunting for awhile... and when he gets used to me aiming for his head all the time, I hit him hard in the body or legs. And then switch to body hunting and then aim for the head when least expected.
And I also mix in sidekicks, front kicks, and spinning back kicks cuz they are least expected.
If he try to clinch, I just push him away as hard as I can... I dunno. I'm scared of getting in a clinch being a small guy and mostly fighting bigger guys in the gym... I dont wanna take a big fucking knee to the chest. :(

In this tournament there are only light contact to sides of head, so I'm not going to bother too much with head shots( I want to win by knockdown or sub). Also only kick/punch and grapple...no knees.
So the liver shots are good I suppose and teh floating rib is at the bottom of the rib cage?

Yes, but how do you open up the liver?
Edit: I would do it by feinting to the head.

Why feint? Just barrage the head until they cover then knee the liver. No I don't care about the OP's ruleset.
