Earlier this month five of our sparring team (Oli, Tom, Cass, Sam & Dylan) went to Calshot to take part in a southern area training and match event.

This was an ideal training event as our team were able to have matches against players from other clubs under Olympic Full Contact rules, using electronic trunk and headguards. Our team did really well winning most of their matches – however, it wasn’t about results, it was about match time on the electronic scoring equipment.

Sam had three matches, and the other had one or two matches. Thanks also to a handful of our club that popped along to support our team.

Lots was learnt from the matches, great progress was shown, and we look forward to the next local match event.

Sparring development classes are held on Mondays and Saturdays. All welcome.
