SPARRING.

"I WOULD SHY AWAY FROM ANY TYPE OF VIOLENCE OUTSIDE THE GYM. I NEVER GOT IN TO FIGHTS AT SCHOOL OR ANY STREET ALTERCATIONS. WITH ANY COMBAT SPORT, YOU'RE TAUGHT TO ONLY USE IT IN SELF-DEFENCE. I WOULD OFTEN BE A MODERATOR IF THERE WAS A FIGHT IN THE PLAYGROUND, I COULD DEFUSE THE SITUATION. I WAS TAUGHT DISCIPLINE, CONFIDENCE & LEADERSHIP SKILLS."

BRITISH TAEKWONDO FIGHTER, LUTALO MUHAMMAD, RIO 2016 SILVER MEDALIST

Sparring is all about control - we want our students to control not just their power but also their behaviour.

We offer sparring only to our higher grade students & our Instructors are always on hand to ensure that children are never in any danger.

To start, students spar using only their hands against the trunk of their opponent (below the head & above the groin), using light, quick touches. This helps increase their confidence that they're not going to get hurt or hurt their opponent.

Next, we introduce light kicks to the trunk until enough control is developed.

Once they have gained the required experience & if they wish, students can enter light continuous Tournaments. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT SPARRING CLASSES ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE IN JERSEY OR DORSET.
