It was a hectic session at Sunday Sparring in Hawley this week when our students decided to use the opportunity for some high intensity endurance sparring.

These free sessions for students  who have passed their safety test allow them to get in some valuable sparring time, practising the techniques they’ve learnt in our training sessions.  It allows them to spar with people they don’t normally train with as well as try out some fun weapon combinations that are not part of our curriculum.
