Scenario-sparring

Here’s a clip from a sparring session from my Sanda/Sanshou class. In the commentary, I’m giving some background as to the why and how of things. It’s nothing new or special, pretty much every coach does this with his students. It’s just my take on things.

The whole idea is for the students to practice something specific, in this case it’s staying at a certain distance. I’m playing the good sparring partner and let them do most of the work. I usually add another aspect to it, something specific for each individual student. That way, they train the concept we’re working on and I try to correct a specific error they’re doing.

Enjoy the clip.

  1. Cool sparring Wim! I like it that it is very controlled too. Good techniques and timing.

    Cheers,

    • Thanks Bert. It’s just a regular class and we’re working on something specific. I like to do that at half-speed at first, to make sure the students can play around with it a bit. Once they get it, then we crank it up a notch.
