Same here. If you can hurt someone to the body, do it. We always hunt for livers in sparring. I got put on the canvas in sparring once by a taller and heavier guy, he had been hunting for my liver for rounds and I could no longer run. I collapsed, in pain, laughing like a farmer with toothache and calling him an asshole. He responded by "humping" me from behind while laughing loudly, attracting the attention of the entire gym. I was unable to move for 10 to 20 seconds, all I could do was listen to a gym full of laughing people
