Level 4 Referee
Apologies @Big Cat if I misunderstood your post.I can see where he is coming from. SFP doesn't necessarily have to be using excessive force as long as it endangers the safety of an opponent. For me this one doesn't but it is close. I can see why one might think it does.
I read it that you were saying that SFP says a lunge with one or 2 feet is SFP and that you weren't picking up on the fact that this still needs the excessive force element, which is the point I was making.
