Bogu Kumite

Bogu Kumite is the Ryu Te version of full contact sparring.

The head gear is similar to Kendo gear and will prevent serious injury from strikes to the head.

In class the gear is used for training more than Ippon Kumite or one point sparring.  Putting the gear on helps students to understand the importance of blocking and to get the feeling of being hit.

Just because the gear is on does not mean that full contact is being used but it is a way to put training to a higher test when you know the training partner will hit you in the head if you don’t block.

As with everything in class the level of intensity will be adjusted to the students level.
