Kumite involves the utilization of blocks, kicks and punches in a sparring situation.
Control and safety are of the utmost importance during kumite training. Students are taught to apply their techniques carefully and efficiently. Hard contact is not allowed during kumite training. Light contact is allowed to the uppser torso. Face contact is never allowed.
All students wear padded gloves when sparring for protection in case of accidental contact. Beginning students will not take part in sparring exercises until they have been training for approximately 1 month.
Sparring will always be supervised by Sensei Takahashi or senior Black Belt.Back
