Description

What is Sanda?

Sanda is a modern unarmed combat sport that developed from traditional wushu techniques, and primarily makes use of punching, kicking, throwing, wrestling and defensive techniques. The full-contact bouts are free flowing and exciting, and athletes are awarded points by the sideline judges for successfully-executed techniques based on the scoring criteria. An athlete will be declared the winner if he or she wins 2 out of the 3 rounds of a bout, or if his or her opponent is knocked out.

What is learnt in a class or course?

First we warm up, which is usually a mixture of fitness training and basic kickboxing techniques, followed by dynamic stretching. Then the class consists of punching and boxing skills, kicking and sweeping techniques, use of focus mitts and kick bags, throws and takedowns, defence and evasion, then 2 person and sparring.
