FACE-OFF FRIDAY: Point Sparring



IT'S FACE-OFF FRIDAY!

Other folks believe that the constraints of point sparring - places that it's illegal to strike and wearing pads - teaches bad habits that will hurt when you face a really violent situation.

But I want to know what you think.

IS POINT SPARRING USELESS?
