    Mabs Cull: This is what I see as a problem with focussing on sparing.

    When you practice the WC drills and techniques it is at full power. When you spar you must "hold back" so as to not do serious harm to your sparing partner. You will fight the way you train. If the bulk of your training is in sparing then you're not likely to explode full power into a real confrontation. Where, if you always practice those techniques at full power then when you have an instant reaction in a real situation it will naturally explode at full power. This is what I see as a problem with focussing on sparing.

    Uh.....did you seriously just necro a FIVE YEAR OLD thread to add that nonsense? Even if we accepted that your comments held value, which to be honest I don't think they do, it would still be ridiculous that they are posted to this ancient thread.

        Yeah because punching air and man dancing translates well to a fight.



        I guess if you fight a stationary guy with a huge erection.

          Do you mean the drills and techniques that you practice against thin air or those where you have to stop just before your partner?

            Why not do Judo? It can be applied at full speed and power WHILE you spar!

                  Sounds like a song, "I can't hold back, I won't back down..."

                  I like sparing, when I'm bowling

                      Do not resurrect threads which died 5 years ago unless you have something new & constructive to say.

                      In other words, SHUT THE FUCK UP.

                        That's utter nonsense. Have you ever actually sparred anyone in your life?

                          of course then he doesn't realize that when you get into a situation or fight adrenaline is pumping and you are not worried about not hurting the other guy. In other words you have a total different mindset, also punching thin air does not give an equivical measure of your striking power. When you punch the air you hold back or put on the brakes in some way to avoid hyperextension of joints.

                            No, but he's spared people. I guess he's so powerful that he has to check himself and not kill everyone he meets with his chunbeams.

                              Bullshit. Not only is it not full power...but it is static...you know what is coming.

                              Bullshit. Have you ever rolled w/ anyone?

                              You are right here. Too bad you are going to be totally fucked if you DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR ATTACKER IS GOING TO ATTACK YOU WITH!

                              That's what drills (largely) are...practice against something that you know is coming (i.e. pak sao vs. straight left, tan sao vs. hook). If that's all you train you will never be able to pick up queues from your attacker w/ regards to what might be coming at you.
