One of my favorite things about karate is that I get to participate in sparring, which is basically when you fight in class or tournaments.
When it comes to sparring my friends that’s where is gets exciting.
It’s fun to spar with friends because you can train on any new techniques or tactics you would use during a tournament, and it’s not like you are in true competition.
You know that you guys will not be hitting too hard, or going full force, but the act of sparring with friends -to me- helps with creating strength, improving, and advancing your game.
