It's also referred to as shadow sparring. It's lame and not practical in any way shape or form other than what I described above.
You would not believe the amount of kids, and adults, who seem to live for that shit. They go to 8-10-12 tournaments a year, and get incredibly into it.
Pad work was incredibly fun, except my partner gassed and I had to get a woman to replace him.
ah, i always wondered :P
you know i dont think ive ever had someone gas while holding my pads. although i have been throwing a combo and lost my balance and awkwardly hit the pad hard as a mouse and made a weird groaning noise that earned me a look of disappointment and pity. hate when that happens >_<

I went to the last follow up with a counselor to see how I was doing with things. He was one of those obvious homosexuals. which I dont mind, but there was this point in the session where he looks at me and says "I hope you know you are a strong and beautiful man" was kind of awkward but hey no more group meetings talking about random crap.
