What is sparring in Karate Class?
Sparring is karate in action—the opportunity to apply techniques and strategies in spontaneous situations. It develops mobility, aim, distancing and control, and also builds endurance. We teach it to build courage and spirit in our students and to provide opportunities for them to study how they react under pressure.
Sparring / Kumite is also the sport of Karate where 2 trained competitors compete under the upmost of fairness in an organized and controlled environment
When Should You Start Sparring?
Each dojo “Karate Class Location” has its philosophy when it comes to sparring, and most of the time, your Sensei will make you take part in a Kumite when he feels you have developed the necessary skills. It generally happens pretty early, within the first month or a couple of months.
At first, you’ll be partnered up with seniors to guide you through the rules. These early sparring sessions will show you how to apply the techniques you’ve learned, depending on your opponent’s position.
What Gear Do You Need To Start Sparring?
Karate sparring gear is essential to start sparring safely. The goal of Karate sparring isn’t to injure your opponent, but to put the techniques you’ve learned into practice. We’ll focus on the gear needed in most sparring sessions, which is designed for hand-to-hand competition.
Here’s the protective gear you’ll need before you start Kumite:
• Safety Head Gear
• Safety Hand Pads
• Safety Shin Pads
• Safety Feet Pads
• See your class Sensei to order them or online at The Kids Karate Club Store at https://kidskarateclub.mybigcommerce.com/sparring-pads/
