Sparring class is a great way to improve your skills. You’ll learn how to apply the techniques learned in other classes against an opponent.
Classes are designed to work with students of all levels — from sparring beginners to advanced students. Students with an interest in sparring are encouraged to attend the class once achieving the rank of Orange belt in Taekwondo or Hapkido.
Although sparring class does involve contact, it’s important to understand that there are strict controls for the safety of everyone involved. We follow WTF rules for Olympic sparring, which vary based on age.
In order to participate in sparring class, you must have appropriate sparring gear. A limited amount of sparring gear is available for students who want to try a sparring class before investing in gear of their own. If you have any questions, please ask Headmaster Kim.
