Interclub Sparring Day

Interclub Sparring Day


We have another combined interclub sparring session for Giant Martial Arts affiliate clubs.

The session will be run by Taekwondo 7th Degree Master Jim Sheedy, read more about him.

The aim of the session is to provide students the opportunity to spar safely against someone they are not used to sparring in a co-operative environment.

The session will be mainly about giving you time 'in the ring' time to try and get the simple things right such as timing and distance.




Here is how it will work:

* Open to Green Belt and above (or experienced in sparring, ask your instructor) members from invited schools.
* No uniforms, T-shirt or rashie with shorts or track-pants.
* 16oz boxing gloves, shin guards, groin guard and mouth guard compulsory, headgear recommended.
* We will try to match partners by size and grade.
* Can manage the type of sparring you want to do eg. Body sparring, Boxing only, Kickboxing only, Grappling only with Gloves, Amateur MMA and can go to ground (keep gloves on) when on ground can tap or resume standup sparring anytime. If you both want to keep grappling, stay on the ground. No knees or elbows. Light contact, spar to learn not to win.
* Take into account preferences of your partner (eg. limited ground-work due to weak neck or shoulder or no leg kicks due to previous knee or leg injuries etc.)
* No techniques that can't be pulled or controlled.
* No ego's, you have to look after each other co-operative sparring light contact there are no 'winners' just 'learners'!
* Tell your partner if they are hitting too hard, can talk to you partner during sparring.
* Can stop anytime for a break and can resume anytime (no-one is judging).
* If anyone loses their cool they will be told to go home.
* Everyone should finish the day with no injuries and a bit better at real sparring.
