Offensive Versus Defense Beginner Sparring Drills | Self Defense For Women

Offensive Versus Defense Beginner Sparring Drills allow you to focus on either your offensive sparring skills or your defensive sparring skills at one time. Normally you get thrown into a sparring class and you are focusing on so many different elements of sparring that you don’t really get good at anything for a while. Being able to just focus on a few key sparring elements allows you to progress much faster. It is the same when it comes to self defense training as well. You don’t need a million different defenses for every attack. Knowing a few defenses that work against multiple attacks is much easier to learn and get better at quicker.

Sparring in itself is unpredictable as most self defense situations are. Martial Arts styles such as taekwondo, where you do a lot of sparring, are more practical for self defense because you aren’t just drilling with theory. You actually learn what sparring skills and self defense skills work for you. This is a key point we teach in our self defense for women workshops.
