It is very important to practice a variety of sparring techniques in order to learn about distance, timing and use of power.
Beginning students practice prearranged sparring technique often and learn to focus techniques at a safe distance from their training partner. As they advance, the focus distance becomes smaller because the student learns to control the technique.
Safety is always the primary concern whenever practicing any sparring technique.
