Abstract

See full text

An indicator which is carried by a participant capable of delivering an offensive blow in a combat sport. The indicator in a preferred embodiment utilizes a hook and loop fastener to maintain its position on the glove or foot of the participant until contact has been made with an opponent. The opponent has a portion of a hook and pile fastening system located on his person which is compatible with the external portion of the indicator when mounted on the participant's equipment. When a blow is struck, a greater amount of retaining force is developed between the indicator and the opponent's hook and loop fastening system then is present between the indicator and the participant's hook and loop fastening system, causing the indicator to be transferred to the opponent at the point of contact. In one embodiment, a small streamer can be attached to the indicator and sandwiched between the indicator substrate and the participant's equipment. However, when the indicator is transferred to the opponent during a blow, the streamer is pulled free and serves as a further visual indication of the existence and position of contact between the participant and his opponent.
