Sparring is available to anyone who wishes to learn fighting techniques, defense skills and drills, footwork, movement and variations of fighting combinations.
Sparring takes place in dedicated sparring only sessions. Unlike many clubs, we never push students to fight unless they want to.
You can choose to spar; light, semi-contact or full-contact.
For students who wish to enter competitions, the PKA Leicester regularly visit events throughout the country. These competitions are ideal if you are looking to gain a rank or just to have fun.
Safety is paramount
Classes are always well supervised by qualified coaches.
Sparring equipment is compulsory for all members; Leicester PKA has only a limited supply of equipment to borrow. The basic kit needed for kickboxing classes includes; boxing gloves, shin guards and kick boots. If you wish to participate in sparing you will also need; a gum shield, head guard and groin guard (for men) or chest guard (for women). Sparring gear can be purchased through the club from instructors or our online store.
