Notes on Sparring

July 7, 2011

More incorporating tricks into sparring tonight. I love sparring with upper belts. In the end I get pummeled, no doubt, but there is always a learning moment in there for me, just as I hope there is a teaching moment in there for my partner. Tonight I could see my sparring partner including elements from tricks and forms, and I too sought out opportunities to use them. He’d tell me when he used them – “See that? I threw the front kick, you moved, I used the side kick from multiple left trick we were practicing earlier and broke your floating rib.” Awesome.
