You know - to be honest I thought I was good enough that this didn't apply to me. My kickboxing trainer said to me "we'll pull you out of point fighting a couple months prior to your fight, cause I don't want you pulling technique"...after much pleading he agreed to allow me to spar defense only, which I have been doing for about a month. So yesterday I entered my first point fighting tournament since starting all the full contact stuff and guess what - all defense. It was like I was stuck to the floor. I could see the openings plain as day but it was like I could not for the life of me get into motion and stick it. So what's my point? I think I am learning for myself that the light contact stuff does not necessarily convert easily to full contact techniques even though I thought it would. It's not just a matter of moving target depth. Not for me, anyways. I hope this doesn't start a flame war - just my experience after working in both realms for a few months now.
