Sanda or sanshou is free fighting, your chance to put those punches and kicks into practice!

Sanda, sometimes called Chinese kickboxing, is a practical martial art, making use of both arms and legs.

Sanda was developed by the Chinese military, based on traditional martial arts and modern advances in sports medicine and training techniques.

This is a complete system that makes use of punches, kicks, kick catches, sweeps, takedowns and throws. Sparring is practiced full contact with protection to avoid injury. Sanda competition does not currently include elbow or knee strikes, but these are often still taught in training. Movements and combinations are drilled repeatedly with a partner until they become second nature and are put into use during the sparring sessions.
