Sparring

Sparring is essential to become a good boxer, kickboxer or Muay Thai fighter. As a fight simulation, it allows you to try what you’ve learned during your lessons, and to see if you can apply it on a resisting opponent. Sparring is still controlled fighting and not an actual fight.

What do you do during sparring sessions?

The point of a sparring session is to use Boxing, Kickboxing or Muay Thai techniques in a fight simulation.

The sparring session at Mejiro Gym Bali usually involves 12 to 15 rounds of 3 minutes. You change opponents for each round.

Beginners and intermediates can learn from more experienced fighters, learn new techniques, assess their distance, see their weaknesses in a controlled environment.

Do not be scared to join the sparring session, even as a beginner. The more experienced fighters know how to control their power, and they’ve all been here and know how you feel. We have a strict no bullying policy that makes everybody welcome to the sparring session.

What you need to join our sparring sessions

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How safe are Mejiro sparring sessions?

Mejiro sparring sessions are very safe. Although you are sparring in boxing, Kickboxing or Muay Thai, the point is still to learn from each other and not to chop each other heads off. If you are a total beginner, you can come and expect to have a very friendly welcome from everyone. And don’t worry, they will go easy on you.

Who decides how hard we can go in sparring?

The coach is the boss in the gym. If he thinks you are going too hard and the situation isn’t safe for your opponent, he will ask you to tone it down. Otherwise, the pace is usually decided intuitively based on your level: easy going on beginners and increasingly challenging on most experienced fighters.

Can I come sparring with you if I train in another gym?

Inter-club sparring is welcome but requires the coach’s approval. Contact us if you need more details.
