    Wekaf is decent enough, i've competed a bit in it and its pretty fun. Its full contact continous sparring, usually 3 rounds of 1 minute each with a light rattan stick and a padded jacket, helmet and gloves. 10 point must scoring based on aggressivenes, ring control, defense etc. Good stuff if youre just getting into full contact stick fighting.

        Should be fun. I've fought in a couple of their matches before. They tend to reward raw aggression, which often leads to a sloppy pillowfight, but I know that they were thinking of grading defensive skill more highly. This would definitely be a good thing.

            Thrusts are disallowed in wekaf, and as Ryno said they do tend to reward raw aggression. Which isnt necessarily a bad thing, you just have to keep yourself honest with the defense.
