Sparring is a form of training common to many combat sports, sparring is not fighting. It is the first step of putting it all together to fight, It’s about practicing skill and technique. The purpose of sparring is to prepare you for boxing and fight competition. The point of sparring is to apply what you learned in a boxing class in a safe, controlled environment with a resisting partner/opponent.
