Sorry if this is not the right place for the thread ... I might also be combining two posts in one On Sparring Partners - It would be really useful if we had the ability to connect with TKD'ers in our locality and train together, preferably from the same org (WTF, ITF) simply because the rules and techniques for competitions appear to be different? Main reason for the thought is we don't get to practice sparring too much. The club is quite large with majority new-starters who need focus and attention. I can only do so much on my own i.e. practice kicks and combinations but nothing I can use as a supplement for partnered sparring. A few like-minded people getting together and practicing would bring great benefits. It would also allows people to share ideas and techniques .. I'll term it 'open-source tkd training'. Questions is how does one find people who share such an interest. Perhaps this forum could have a section on meet & greet and training? I guess the other question I have is, how can I improve my sparring training solo?
