    San Shou sparring

    I just talked to an advanced student about the Six Harmonies style, and I heard that the school uses San Shou sparring which he explained was full contact, throws included. This would guarantee good training with "aliveness", right?

    San Shou/Leitai sparring is good. It's what all kungfu schools should be doing for their sparring.

    I think beginners start with point sparring and work up to San Shou, but I didn't get into many specifics. I just kinda thought it might be dangerous...but **** it, I ain't scared.

    just when we thought we had an easy answer to the question, point sparring makes an appearance.

    Yeah, but at least there's a next step in the school. You don't want a bunch of spazes just wailing away at each other without proper supervision, and point sparring is easier to teach in larger groups until people get the idea of proper distance and crap like that.

    I mean I really hate point sparring because it develops some very bad habits, but it's much easier to increase the level of contact to get rid of most of those problems. If you just throw them right in, you need more coaches on hand to supervise and make sure proper technique and tactics are being taught and utilized. Otherwise it's just a bunch of wild swingers with bloody noses.

    Why do people ask questions they already know the answers to?
