Free Sparring is where all the practice is shown in execution of sport fighting techniques.

Free Sparring is done under a directive of controlled contact.  The question is often asked: "Do the students really hit each other?" Yes, they do. But it is under very controlled conditions and without the intent of injuring one another.

At FSTA, with the clear understanding of control and wearing of protective gear, injuries are rare.

Students are not trying to beat each other up. They are trying to score on each other, by landing controlled punches or kicks to specific target areas.

Students must show a proficiency per belt rank, in controlled contact free sparring. Always a favorite activity.
