  • Description

Justyn Billingham's 2nd book - Signed Copy (please enter the persons name you would like it signed to in the 'Notes & Special Request' field during checkout)

Sparring is a core activity in any fighting art, and failing to test your fighting ability through controlled sparring is akin to learning to drive a car without ever getting in the driving seat.

Sparring improves your physical abilities, but is so much more than just punching and kicking a like-minded opponent, as 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.

Written by an acknowledged expert, this detailed book contains nearly 600 full-colour photographs demonstrating warm-up drills, conditioning techniques and stretching methods as well as detailing defensive and counter-evasive sparring techniques.

The unique training drills contained in this book allow you to train either on your own or with a training partner.

Written in an easy to comprehend, no-nosense style, this remarkable book is an ideal guide for anyone, whether they are just starting out in their chosen art, or whether they are more experienced.

  • Explains how to warm up correctly to reduce the risk of injury, how to achieve improved flexibility, and how to develop the box (side) split and front-split stretch
  • Covers conditioning exercisesto toughen the body and strengthen the core
  • Looks at both solo-training drills and partner-training drills
  • evaluates defensive techniques to use against a kick, punch or combination attack
  • Examines effective counter-methods that enable the fighter to return successful attacks
  • Studies continuous sparring drills for all levels
  • Considers point-sparring drills for explosive attacks
