    what do you mean? has anyone gone from MMA to point kumite?

    I wouldn't think there would be too many guys like that here except for some karate guys who may do both.

    I tried a bit of point sparring at my old karate dojo but its difficult for full contact guys to 'light' by some karate standards.

    The only "point" scoring system I've seen ends up being full contact to legs and body and just light enough to head so it won't result in a knockout.

    I dont think I've ever heard of somebody moving from full contact anything to point sparring.

    It might possibly happen in the initial stages of training, if a person doesn't like the level of contact being made, and looks for something lighter, but even this, I would imagine, is pretty rare, cause if you've never done ma before, and some guy gives you a dig, your most likely though will be, "well that must be how it works in ma"


    Loads of people have made the switch the other way

    But no, not a famous world class full contact athlete, because, really, who would give that up to to play an amateur sport for no $?

    I used to do point karate.
    It is by far the most obnoxious sport I've ever done. Having a referee up in your business to declare that no one scored a point every ten seconds is just about as annoying as possible.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Yeah, torimasen, that is really the most aggravating part. It's like, someone's little brother poking you repeatedly just to say hi.
