Sparring is a core activity in any martial art, and failing to test your fighting ability through controlled sparring is akin to learning to drive a car without ever getting into the driving seat. Sparring improves your physical abilities, but is so much more than just punching and kicking a like-minded opponent, for it also has amazing character-building qualities. It is something that almost anyone can enjoy, regardless of their age, size, ability or gender, and with full-contact, semi-contact, light-contact, no-contact, point-fighting and continuous sparring, to name but a few, there is almost certainly a type of sparring to suit everyone.
Justyn Billingham started training in taekwon-do at the age of fourteen, and while studying that art he also took up karate and kickboxing to further advance his training and widen his knowledge of the martial arts. Over a period of twenty-three years he has achieved several dan grades including a fourth dan in kickboxing, and is currently a monthly columnist for Martial Arts Illustrated magazine. He has held various titles throughout his tournament years, representing England on two occasions, and is considered by many to be an authority on stretching and dynamic kicking.
