Flag Sparring Drill
Flag Sparring is one of our students’ favorite drills!
It’s important to maintain the following rules to make this drill work:
1. NO RUNNING. Flag Sparring is meant to practice footwork and defense.
2. NO HOLDING TO YOUR FLAGS. Movement and blocking are the ways we defend our flags.
3. NO GRABBING YOUR PARTNER. There are versions of Flag Sparring that involve grappling and even ground work, but we only do those with the older students.
4. NO HIDING YOUR FLAGS. Your flags should be visible and within reach.
