FREE Introduction to Sparring Workshop |12th May 2012

On Saturday 12th May from 1.30pm – 3.00pm we are holding an FREE Introduction to Sparring Workshop.

First let me explain what Sparring is all about. Sparring is about applying your technical skill against a resisting partner in a controlled environment. Notice how I never used the term fighting. Fighting is what you do in a ring or for to defend yourself. Sparring is a tool to improve your skills.

Sparring is also one of the most enjoyable and beneficial aspects of martial arts training. Sparring is also a vital component to becoming a competent martial artist. The benefits of Sparring are;

  • Develop the correct time to throw techniques (called timing)
  • Learn the proper distance to through techniques (called range)
  • Sparring is great for developing fitness
  • It’s a lot of fun.
  • It will develop self confidence
  • Did I mention it’s a lot of FUN

Like any other aspect of training students need to be taught how to spar safely and effectively. That’s what this seminar is all about.

The seminar is FREE to any of our adult students providing you have a complete Sparring safety kit. This includes

  • 16oz Gloves
  • Shin Instep Guards
  • Groin Guard
  • Gum Shield

If you want to attend the seminar but don’t have the complete sparring kit, all you need to do is purchase the required equipment from the Academy at a discounted rate.
