I agree. But this is really not sport, it's justing testing one's skills in a semi realistic scenarium. I believe that most martial arts do this, and I would not say it was sport.
Although some of the same mechanisms apply, like the banning of certain lethal techniques and the likes.
Common sense dictates it.........
How does one measure ability without an uncooperative partner?
By having someone compete
Ask someone to be compliant when they do not want to fall down for you , have every intention of taking your head off by pummelling it with their fists and you will know why!!!
