The martial arts are a contact sport! However, we do not feel beginner students should be sparring until they have obtained basic skills, control of their bodies and some humility. No one in the school spars before a six month training period. When you do begin sparring, it is at a slow pace. We have an extensive set of sparring rules which must be signed by all students. It is our goal to provide the safest environment possible while still teaching realistic sparring and self defense skills. You will be asked after six months to purchase a set of sparring gear.
