I am just tired of hearing people say "I fight full contact" then walk onto the mat dressed like the stay puff marshmellow man.

haha, absolutely! While I love some nice solid contact in competition, the competitors have to understand how much damage their techniques can do, or else you see the usual swinging for the fences scraps.

I have nothing against point sparring- but I do have something against point-stop sparring. I simply fail to understand how it is useful. Afterall, not only is the whole one-hit ko philosophy flawed IMO, but trying to judge what is the first strong techinque to score, can be a nightmare for the judge/referee.
