Once you the student feel you are fit enough and capable enough then the BCA runs sparring classes after the kickboxing lessons or at weekends.
The sparring classes are for you to push your fitness boundary to the limit. They are designed so you can practice the skills you have learnt in a confined ring environment, an extremely hard place to master them.
Sparring is not about hitting hard and trying to knock your opponent to the ground. Sparring is a strict discipline that will enhance you as a person and give you confidence in confrontational situations.
Sparring is strictly regulated and is not something that you should be apprehensive of. At the BCA sparing is done in a strictly controlled setting where students of all abilities, all ages, all sizes and differing genders can compete against each other in a safe learning environment without fear of injury.
