    I don't know how they'd go about checking that, so I don't see why not.

    Oh for ****'s sake, it's point sparring with padded weapons? I'm suddenly a lot less enthusiastic about this...

    If the FMA guy is setting the rules I hope we can bring rattan and make a little contact

    This sounds like fun. I may have to look into this.

    So i'm not sure what "point sparring" means in this case. In some ways, any attempt to simulate bladed fighting will end up being point sparring in one way or another. Otherwise you just retardedly double-kill each other. Forced break after every exchange is ghey, however.

    So you're getting a freer range of targets and strikes, but loosing the rigidity of the weapons(I don't see much in the way of deflection going on in those bouts).

    Clearly we need to have you as a ref, deducting points on the basis of gay severity.

    I don't know about this hyped up style vs style angle. I don't really want to fight with padded weapons in an ego filled environment- that just sounds silly. At least in the Cold Steel challenge I could win some cool knives and stuff.
