    Perhaps a way to clarify the errors in your logic (which is separate from evaluating the conclusion), is to go for something similar. If we compared training for indoor soccer to raining for FIFA-rules soccer we'd find those training exclusively for indoor soccer will probably perform poorly at FIFA soccer. Why? Different context they've trained for. Smaller field, can use walls (I think that's true for any wall bordering the playing area), and hard floors will all change the way the game is played. Similar toolsets, but used and trained differently.

    Does it have to be a club? what about a Bo or Jo perhaps a katana? I've love to see a Muay Thai fighter against a fighter armed with a katana ( or even a small knife) What fun!

    Never seen it in your 4 years of training that must mean it's never happened right.

    I'll tell you why you don't see it...because the majority of taekwondo fighters aren't training to be professional fighters and don't want brain damage. If you're fighter then hard sparring is vital but when your training as a hobby a few times a week why the heck would your head smashed around

    I guess the reason: training because it's fun did not enter into the thought process of some users in here.

    Only train that which is the best and wins the testosterone award:rolleyes:

    The word itself doesn't 'entail' anything, but he does know what the word means.

    I guess you have no idea what you are talking about.

    I might as well give up training then............. :D

    I'm sorry I have to do this to you once again.

    Entail

    to cause or involve by necessity or as a consequence,

    the definition of entail

    It's hard to continuously club someone when they're knocked out on the floor

    Actually, seriously, I was going to ask you that. You take everything that is said literally as if the nuances, ideas and comments don't process in your mind. I suspect the reason you have asked me is in fact because you have difficulty not in the English language but that you think literally and also obsess with certain aspects such as the black belt. I have actually thought it before in other threads, if this is the case please tell us how we can engage with you in a way that is meaningful.

    If you aren't however I will continue to be sarcastic because I can be and we are now getting tired of your haranguing us.

    That's a separate matter. Fact is that WTF TaeKwondo is for all intents and purposes a stop format, despite being full contact.

    Now you are proving my point because you didn't understand and are looking at the wrong thing.

    If you mean what does continuous sparring entails that is correct but you asked if he knew what 'continuous' entailed, well of course it doesn't entail anything because you haven't qualified what is continuous.
    Grammar & vocabulary

    One does not exclude the other. You are both trying to correct me and be sarcastic/funny at the same time. You have a tendency to jump on words, which you deem incorrectly used, as in your previous post, when it is unwarranted. Trying to be a wiseass.

    Yes, and a word doesn't "involve by necessity".

    Because I didn't think I need to spell out every single sentence in order for you guys to get it. But from here on, I will be ULTRA precise. I have to take great care of native speakers, it seems.
