“In forms students show off their physical abilities, control, speed, balance and precision. Forms train our mind and muscle memory and also self-defense skills”, says Adam Spicar, the owner. And then he adds: “Sparring is considered the most thrilling to spectators. You get to see students throw kicks and punches at each other as well as many other exciting jumping kicks and jump spinning kicks. They use protective gear and must also execute moves with control. In order to win sparring rounds they have to score more points then their partner. It’s incredibly high energy and exciting! You got to see it!
