Re: Body sparring.
yep. agree with all this. i dont seem to be great at body sparring yet am the best bodypuncher i know in proper sparring at my sort of level.
think it encourages far too many bad habits.
also hit peoples elbows all the time and injured thumbs before.
worst aspect is people just have their guard so low it is completely unrealistic. always tempted to crack a left hook in ther face to show them the error of their ways!
