12.0 Combining Punches, Kicks and Throws

A method to approach kickboxing training has already been described. After the individual techniques have been mastered, one partner continuously attacks for at least two minutes, while the other only defends. After a brief pause, they switch. The purpose here is to develop a good sense of distance and direction.

The next step is similar except that the defender is allowed to use stopping techniques and to counter. He does not initiate any attacks. The purpose here is to develop timing. Finally, freestyle sparring, with non-focused controlled kicks and punches, follows. Naturally, this is the most meaningful part of the training. Because of the skill required to practice safely, beginners are not encouraged to free-spar until they have mastered all other forms of training.
