haha yeh, we have goggles for training eyegouging but in general you can't really spar fullon in this type of thing for obvious reasons. It becomes a very fine line when training with resistance (ie, training partner knowing what you are going to do and trying to avoid or resist) and you got to get to know your training partners if you are going to go that far. Ie / last night I was practicing knife defence from a flatonback position and it was with resistance from a heavy training partner, so because he was so goddam strong (and knew exactly what I was intending to do
) I didnt get the move on and ended up having to improvise, so it ended up in us rolling for a bit whilst he was trying to stab me with a rubber knife and I simulated an eyegouge by tapping him near the eyes with fingers flat.... then he stabbed me in the leg LOL
