    Bloody hell, you'd be as well having a staring out contest.;)

    What happens when your dumb opponent just happens to walk onto your strike. Are you penalised for that or is your opponent penalised for being unable to avoid a half baked strike.:confused:

    It'd be down to the interpretation of the rules by the officials John, but you knew that didn't you? ;)

    Having watched it on TV. the players were being penalised for "excessive contact" a bit harshly IMO

    I mean excessive is entrierly down to the individuals interpretation but we spar with that level of contact in class let alone for £10,000.

    Now i understand that this may have been for the benefit is keeping things looking less like a slugfest but to be fair some of the competitors reaction to blows were verging on the ridiculous.

    Not a good advert for TMA sparring.

    I'm a national official who uses the new wkf rules, and if a fighter blatantly walks on to an attack then the judges and referee can give him a warning for mubobi, which is a disregard for one's own safety. I think that the rules work well, you have to remember that not all styles fight by full contact rules. The wkf new rules allow a lot more oppurtunity for more technically difficult techniques, and haven't been in use that long. As for the injury on the night, there was only one i saw, and that was jason ledgister, and he was forced to pull out. I admit the rules are quite difficult when you first encounter them, but after a while you begin to see the benefits.
