How about this: Consider boxing training. Consider the level of boxing competition. Where do you think it ranks on a scale from no-touch point sparring to full contact sports like, er, well, examples fail me at the moment...? It just does not strike me as a matter of controversy.
I also fail to see how someone can hang around here for long enough to make almost 280 posts without figuring out whether boxing is in the General Opinion camp of BJJ and MT, or in the camp of TKD, _ing _un, and Aikido.

It's good, but it's nowhere near as good as say, Ki Chuan Do.

The general opinion of people on Bullshido is that the arts that deserve to be respected are those that practice with aliveness, meaning training with full force and resistance, including sparring, under rulesets that are as permissive as possible. A good showing in MMA events also helps. BJJ is one such art. Muay Thai is another. Boxing is, yes, another, and so are sambo, Kyokushin and related schools of karate, San shou...
