I just watched a video that was posted on Eric Knaus's Facebook where he fought someone with no mask. First things first, the guy he fought should be glad he didn't catch one of his backhands... those things look like they'll kill you! But also it was interesting to watch because both fighters were being very cautious... you could tell they both had a great deal of respect for what would happen if they got hit. Because of this the fight had, in my opinion, a bit of a slower feel to it. This got me thinking "I wonder how different the fight would look if his opponent didn't have that respect... didn't understand that he can't just rush in and swing wildly". You could easily say that Eric would have just stepped back and let him have one of those backhands and that's all she wrote. Either way though I think the next time I'm sparring I'm going to ask my friend to try to emulate your typical street thug attack and see how I react to it. I figure if I ever have to defend myself that is the most likely scenario and so that's the one for which I want to be prepared.

I wrote a Rambling Rumination which discussed the evolution of the head gear and other gear over the years not too long ago.  Does anyone remember which it was or where to find it?

Yes, that is it.  Thank you.

Anyway, from the sounds of things you might want to have your role-playing opponent wear something more like a helmet.

That's what I was thinking as well. I figure if nothing else it will help me make sure my foot work is in order. I have a class with Lester Griffin at his new school here in Hemet tomorrow night and I think it's something I may bring up with him and see what his thoughts are. Thank you for your input and advice as well.
