    2 Questions:

    1) What is point sparring (non-contact)? Is it really semi-contact?
    2) How are you feeling Phil? Almost ready for it?!

    Kuya Simon,

    I think it is sparring with padded sticks w/ helmet and body armour, not sure though. It is my first time so i can't say if it is semi contact.
    I will take vidoe of the event so we can see how it works.

    And me? I think i'm going to get beaten to a pulp :), but i'll give it all i got.
