Theory

Meaning Of Red Belt – Red signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control and warning the opponent to stay away.

What is One Step Sparring? One step sparring is the most realistic form of sparring there is, simply because the defender cannot foresee the attack coming. Therefore, the defender must have very fast reflexes, in order to defend and defeat the opponent. This form of sparring is completely different to free sparring, i.e. take down techniques, arm locks, joint breaking techniques etc. are practised. Both students normally begin in parallel stance, but this may be varied at the instructors’ discretion.
