You Need Full Contact To Make Your Martial Art Work
Full contact means applying your skills against a non-compliant resisting opponent. Just because you hit somebody hard doesn't mean they will fall down and die. One doesn't have to go out and get a kickboxing match to experience contact. Contact training can be done in ways to get participants a realistic feel. Grappling can be done almost all out without injury (just make sure you tap). Striking arts have to be monitored a little more as a hard blow can easily make one go to sleep or break a nose. But, contact training is necessary to learn effective martial arts.
