Sparring Class

The overall goal of all the types of sparring in KMG is to prepare the practitioner for real life encounters and at the same time improve certain given qualities. The level of pressure/stress in the sparring should be adequate to the level of the students training together and the qualities the sparring is aimed at.

For instance, if we want a more technical approach where the students have the possibility to explore new techniques that they just have learned, they have to be put in an environment that facilitates that.

NOTE: The start of  different types of sparring can differ from person to person, the table above is a recommendation and uses the levels in the curriculum where the type of sparring first appears (Medium fighting was added to give another tool for natural progression and will not be found in the KMG curriculum). Also the percentages of Pace and Impact might vary between practitioners.

Except of this, sparring can be directed to different subjects; it can be used in different surroundings, and with the use of weapons for one (or two) of the participants (knife/stick). Also sparring against multiple opponents is an option.
