I'm going to a tournament this march as well, in Salt Lake City. Point sparring is a big joke, I think. ha ha. maybe not. anyway, I think my tournament is following the SKITA rules. Read the handbook, in any case, really good so you don't get dq'd for something stupid. Ask the tournament coordinators if you have any specific questions.
As for poitn sparring techniques... well, it's like tag, and I'm looking forward to my point sparring. yippee! *this was completely point-less. ha ha*
