Spar where When practicing techniques in class, most schools have students practice using one technique repeatedly, such as kicking a target with a round kick to a called count. This helps students perfect the technique, but it trains them to throw only one technique at a time. When training in a specific technique, it is best to include another hand or foot attack before and after the technique. All techniques are practiced in combination with another technique.
Each round has a different stipulation, such as:
- With any kick, the leg must kick at least twice before being returned to the floor.
- Each kick must be used in combination with another type of kick
- Every kick must be preceded with a hand attack, and vice versa.
- Any attack must continue with a combination of attacks until the referee stops the action (no one or two technique attacks).
- At the first movement of an attack by the opponent, instead of avoiding or blocking the attack, the student rushes in with a flurry of counterattacks.
