Sparring

Sparring is an integral part of Taekwon-do training which most new students find daunting to start with. Be assured that all Sparring within our Schools is touch contact. Touch contact demonstrates skill far better than full contact. Students are fully supervised at all times but more so when sparring. School higher grades will spar with lower grades and are expected to coach lower grades at all times.

All sparring sessions are conducted using full protective equipment including Head Guard, Gum Shield, Groin Guard for men, Forearm Guards, Gloves, Shin Guards and Foot Guards. Sparring as with Patterns can be performed purely at club level for grading purposes or for the more adventurous the arena of Regional, National and even International Competitions beckons.
