    I started taekwondo because they had really good chocolate cake at their info stand at my university, years ago.No joke! That, and they said it was full contact and I should get a groin protector for my own good as soon as possible.

    Still doing it because it's the only thing I know how to do well. Whenever someone says we can't punch I agree, and elbow them in the face :icon_comp

    It's fifty-fifty in general. I don't like being selfish.

    I had alot of fun in my Taekwondo days. Trained in ATA for 4 years before my instructor moved to another town. The point sparring actualy did help me transition to full contact karate sparring years later.

    In point sparring its pretty much all timing, speed, and range. You get a great feel for range and technique when you point spar. The only hard part for most people is making the transition to continues sparring. But I didnt have a hard time with the transaction at all. I think its because Im a bit of a sadist and prefer to get beat up and dish it out in a way that point sparring dosnt allow.

    Every now and then Ill get my opponent with a nice hook kick to the head, and everytime to this day in class they are like. 'damn what the hell was that?' . I just laugh, gratefull for all the things I managed to take from my years as a TKD student.

    I've never done any "point sparring" like a lot of tkd and krotty people go on about. I think it would feel a bit weird. The closest I've gotten is that in semi-contact bouts the ref usually stops and restarts the fight if one scores a hit to the head. They seem to have stopped doing that now, unless there's an actual accidental knockout.

    accidental knockout in any MA kinda makes me giggle. I don't know why but that term just seems a bit odd in context?
