    Point Sparring vs No Sparring?

    Search yielded nothing, but my search-fu is severely lacking.
    So, what are your opinions?

    Would it be better to point spar, or not spar at all?

    If you have no choice for real sparring. I would choose not sparring and go running/ body weight exercises. That way I don't have to untrain bad habits(again).

    Point sparring is marginally better, but then you get attached to point sparring and never move on to real sparring.

    False choice.

    even though machida's karate is technically point sparring... he doesn't seem to be pulling any punches.

    There's point sparring and there's point sparring.

    Even the best point sparring sucks. Most point sparring sucks an infinity times more.

    I have said it before and I'll say it again. The original intention of point sparring was as a safe way to practice full contact no equipment sparring.

    I.E. We are going to fight hard but we are only going to do it until someone gets hit HARD three times.

    It is a means to an end (if done right) not an end in itself.

    Isn't a BJJ tournament technically a point sparring tournament?
