SPARRING ( MATSOKI ) - FREE SPARRING

Free sparring is basically putting what has been learnt so far into practice, with no pre-warning of attack. Therefore, not as many defending techniques can be practised as in the other forms of sparring. Free sparring is strictly semi-contact. This type of sparring must only be carried out under the strict supervision of a qualified Instructor.
