Sparring Rules

• Students bow to each other before and after each match.
• Students face one another and practice their kicks, punches and blocks in sparring combinations without making physical contact.
• Techniques are thrown with light contact to areas above the waist and below the neck, but not to the back side.
• Hands are to be kept up in the defense position so that a technique does not accidentally make contact with the torso or head.
• When a student steps out of the designated area, the action stops, students return to the center and bow again before any action resumes. The same process occurs if one or both.
• Any time there is a visible distress to either student, a break in action is to be taken to give time to recover.
• Students build confidence through sparring because they can improve their skill with regards to striking, evading, blocking, timing, etc. in a controlled/respectful environment.
• Sparring will only be practiced when an instructor is present and at the risk of the one who’s sparring.
• To develop one’s self control is to develop into a true Martial Artist Sparring partners are responsible for the physical health of their partner at all times.
• If two students of different belt rank spar against each other, the higher belt rank must spar down to the level of the lower.
• If two students are of different strength spar each other, the stronger of the two must spar down to the level of the other.
