Sparring Theory

First Impression
Distance / Speed

We’ve all heard from our parents that the β€œFirst Impression” is a lasting impression. So how you are dressed, your personal hygiene and your demeanor will impact the impression you make. This is also true for sparring. You will consider a quiet mild mannered opponent a β€œweak” opponent. Conversely, you will be shocked and fear for your life if you have a crazed opponent screaming at the top of their lungs. So to appear β€œstrong”, use your β€œOUTSIDE” voice and take command of the ring.

It is said that if you can control distance in ANY type of sparring you can win any match. This is done by knowing YOUR speed in relation to the opponent. AND, knowing what techniques to use in each situation.

TKD sparring under black belt is a smaller subset, therefore easier to manage (and coach).

1st … after bowing to your opponent … YELL as loud as you can with the MEANEST face possible. This will short circuit the opponents brain and, if done properly, will put him in FIGHT or FLIGHT mode. The goal is the latter where he/she wants to run away (from the crazy person)

2nd … you have to MEASURE your speed against the opponent. As soon as they say SIJAK (begin), you should try to beat your opponent to the kick. THIS will tell you if you are 1) Slower than your partner (you get kicked first), 2) Your speed is the equal (you clash knees) or 3) You are FASTER than your opponent (you land the kick before they kick you). Here is how to handle each situation.

YOU are FASTER = Kick 3x alternating legs - PUSH with BOTH hands and do a PUSH kick
SAME SPEED = Slide w/ Cover = Kick 3x alternating legs - PUSH and PUSH kick
YOU’RE SLOWER = clinch / HUG = push away and push kick + kick if you have an opening
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE - STAY AWAY from them

Teen martial arts encourages a development state of mind, teaching teenagers to welcome challenges, learn from failures, and continue their quest of personal growth.

www.kingtigermartialarts.com

Parents, here are some steps you can take to help your teens overcome obstacles and develop a development mindset:

1️⃣ Encourage them to establish realistic objectives and break them down right into smaller sized, achievable steps. This helps them see progression and build self-confidence.

2️⃣ Teach them to view failures as opportunities for finding out and development. Remind them that even the best martial artists encountered setbacks on their journey.

3️⃣ Emphasize the importance of willpower and resilience. Advise them that success typically follows facing and getting over challenges.

4️⃣ Foster a supportive environment where they really feel comfy requesting help and seeking assistance from their instructors and peers.

5️⃣ Celebrate their initiatives and progression, instead of solely concentrating on the end result. Encourage them to value the journey and the lessons discovered along the way.

Remember, martial arts is not just about physical skills, but also about creating a strong state of mind. Together, let's empower our teens to embrace challenges and grow into confident individuals!
