Free sparring, called kyroogi in Korean, has been defined as hyungs in action. However, unlike hyungs, free-sparring is spontaneous, instinctive, and realistic.
Free-sparring is performed in a controlled non-threatening environment. It provides you with the opportunity to experience opponents of all shapes and sizes and their chosen techniques. You have the opportunity to put all that you have learned into practice.
When free-sparring you must have confidence at all times. Confidence is developed from constant practice where you learn to overcome your liabilities, accent you abilities, and sharpen your technique. Confidence also comes from having self-control and most important, a strong desire to win. If you practice like everyone else, you will not accomplish anything. You must develop a fighting style that suits you, and then you will have confidence in yourself.
