Sparring Rules (unless otherwise instructed by class instructor)
- NO CONTACT above the shoulders or in the groin or knee area.
- LIGHT BODY CONTACT ONLY
- NO SPARRING WITHOUT STRICT SUPERVISION
- Gloves, cup and mouthpiece must be used during sparring
Sparring is the culmination of all your kung fu training put to use in a free-style sanshou format. Your intent should be to utilize superior technique, speed, power and tactics against your opponent, while following the above rules. The more effort you put into developing striking speed and power, lowering your stances, learning and mastering countering techniques, and improving the power and speed of your forms, the better you will spar.
