    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Point fighting that does actually suck (100% completely anyway)?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuWsYVEZV2M

    I think here is an example of one. It at very least looks like something like combat sport, seems that the JKA rules in this era at least were not completely retarded despite the matches being stopped always after a scoring hit. Some other could actually be ITF Taekwondo? Probably going to be hanged for this but I remember watching some matches with their rulesets and there was actually decent kicks, maybe even some decent punches

    Well what Im saying that compare the video I linked to almost any to say WTF karate match in 2016 and it doesnt seem like even the same sport really

    Oh the 80's were funny times. Full Contact but Stop/Start with rules that create fast amusing to watch action. I would say these fine people are the "old school" Shotokan Karate guys people keep talking about... so comparing them to modern TKD isn't fair to either style.

    Kickboxing and Boxing are point fighting rulesets/styles that don't suck. San Shou (sp?) ... umm **** tons out there. KK is point based or at least has a point focus at times.

    This video popped up on my FB feed a few days ago and for some reason I sat and watched it through. I think it's pretty good.

    At my daughter's karate tournament earlier this month they had some exhibition fights that were timed instead of to a fixed number of points. They were very entertaining to watch. They still stopped at each point, but the refs worked to determine the score and restart very quickly.

    So ... questions answered? More questions? Hateful comments about anyones' mums?

    ...

    Can anyone think of a completely "pointless" martial art with a proven track record?

    Yes.

    First of all, you're mom sucks eggs.

    And so does point fighting. Although occasionally you can find examples of it not sucking so hard.

    Unlike your mom.

    I would say that shotokan style point fighting is great. When used as a drill. It's a useful tool for developing solid range and timing. Look at what it did for Machida and Wonderboy. But you can't ever mistake it for the real deal.

    The only really "pointless" system I can think of that is worth a **** is the DBMA stuff.
