Great question! I’d like to hear some other people’s training when it comes to point and continuous sparring.
What I do is:
Monday and Wednesday: jog 4k
Tuesday and Thursday: 6 sets of 100m
Saturday: 5 hours of martial arts (it’s not all sparring)
Right now, my schedule is shaky, so Saturday is my only constant. But, if I’m able to make it during the week to the dojo, then martial arts overrides whatever workout I have planned.
I think the training is heavily dependent on strategy. Being a short guy (5’4), I have to move around a lot, have to be light on my feet, use angles, etc.
So I train my stamina and legs more.
I don’t do that much strength training, since sparring is usually not full contact. I need speed and stamina a lot more than strength.[/quote]
Yeah when it comes to point sparring, I’d say speed and agility wins it. But I compete in mixed events, so I’m often confused on what types of training I should do.
