This book is the culmination of over
17 years of research. It is the first book of its kind to fully describe
all aspects of sparring along with training exercises designed to integrate
these elements into your own fighting style.
Most martial art schools teach light
or no-contact point sparring; the school in which we began placed a
heavy emphasis on street or combat oriented sparring—contact was
moderate to heavy. Our instructors used Joe Lewis’ The
Theory of Free Style (see Appendix F).
This document (based upon the teachings of Bruce Lee) was one of the
first systemized methods of teaching sparring to students. Though it
was revolutionary in its day, it failed to cover all aspects of combat
theory and did not have defined methods for training. Without it, however,
this book would never have come about, therefore, we salute the pioneers
who have contributed to the martial arts world to make this research
and publication possible.
DEFINITION OF SPARRING
The first concise definition of sparring (or freestyle)
was presented by Ed Parker, father of American Kenpo Karate. Ed Parker
identified two types of sparring—Tournament and Street. Tournament
Freestyle, he explained, consists of Amateur (light or no contact) and
Professional (full contact or knockout). Both of these aspects fall
within the Sports Phase of martial arts; however, both “employ
rules that restrict, limit, and hamper” the fighter’s versatility.
He felt that Tournament Freestyle is sparring with rules and Street
Freestyle is sparring without rules. While I agree with his definition
and breakdown of Tournament Freestyle, I disagree with his definition
of Street Freestyle. While it may be acceptable for criminals to attack
others without a moral compass and a feeling of impunity, it is not
acceptable under the law and certainly not acceptable for the martial
As citizens we are bound by the law
to apply only as much force as is necessary under the circumstances
to escape from an assault. If, for example, you are attacked by a knife-wielding
assailant and you manage to disarm and incapacitate him, then you are
protected under the law. However, if you pick up the knife and stab
the incapacitated attacker and cause his death, then you have just crossed
from being a victim to being a murderer.
Citizens are not the only people bound
by rules, so are police officers and military personnel. Police officers
must use only the reasonable amount of force that is necessary to subdue
a suspect. Once the suspect has been subdued and handcuffed, police
officers must then protect the suspect from harm—even if the suspect
had just tried to murder the officer! A soldier in the military may
be engaged in deadly combat with enemy citizens in a particular foreign
city on one day; however, the very next day, his commanding officer
may give orders that those very same citizens are now “friends”
and the military personnel must now act as humanitarians.
This realization prompted me to develop a systemized
manner that martial artists may use to determine the rules of engagement
and the necessary force that may be applied before and after a tactical
encounter (see Pre-Combative Offensive Strategies page 55
and Combative Offensive Strategies page 114).
This work is the definitive guide to freestyle sparring, personal combat
theory, and training. It is divided into four sections—Beginning,
Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert.
