Default Re: What is the point of "light sparring" as a consistent training method?

I guess everyone has their definition of light sparring, or hard sparring.
I definitely see the value in conditional sparring (jab only, switch stance only etc..), and we definitely go lighter with newbs and smaller folks. Maybe there is value in it, but it has to be used very carefully. I think if people aren't afraid to get hit - cuz the shots are light, they might crumble under the pressure of competition.
