    I doubt you will find very many people who do full contact sparring period. Hard contact, certainly, but there's pretty much always a little more in reserve. Because it's sparring.
    And yes, please explain to me why head contact would be frowned upon. And before you start, you might bear in mind that while I have roughly ten times as much TKD experience as you, I'm willing to bet I have roughly a hundred times more medical training than you. Because 35 years in the ER...
    If some schools prohibit kicks to the head, so what? There are schools that only spar no contact. That's a school issue, not a TKD issue.

    I think the point here was you agreed semi contact before you started.

    Then you decided to go full contact to the body. BTW why did you feel 1. It was needed 2. You had the right, to go heavy?

    Was your opponent meant to understand the shift in rules and try to adjust mid fight?

    What were the 'new' rules that you were trying to indicate?

    - heavy to the body, light to the head.
    - heavy turning kick/round house to the stomach but light everything else.
    - I can hit you as hard as I like but you have to go easy.

    Either way you were changing/making up rules as you went and expected him to keep up, until he changed the rules to full contact.

    This is why rules are set before sparring begins and it is important that they are stuck to. No matter what opinion you hold about what is safe or allowed.

    To clarify for @Axiom what you meant, was there an agreement that you would not go full contact? From what I understood and from my past comments, I made the assumption that there was an agreement not to go full contact, that you broke by going full contact (which you've stated multiple times), but if there was an agreement to go full contact everywhere but the head (which is a legitimate thing i have seen before) then the response by the kickboxer is out of line. If not I will repeat my previous sentiment that you don't agree with, where you broke the rules and then he broke the rules, but for some reason you ignore you breaking the rules and try to blame him for it.

    I'm pretty sure he's gone, whether he jumped or was pushed I don't know but if you look at his profile bit it doesn't come up, says 'error'. Usually means he's departed from us.

    I learned my kickboxing from this man Jean-Yves Thériault (kickboxer) - Wikipedia and from his trainers. I believe he may have just a bit more experience than a Serbian national Champion, being PKA champion for 15 years. Pretty sure he could handle a jab.
