This is my favorite You-Tube Video right now. It’s Anderson Silva doing something called “Pro Sparring“. Pro Sparring is similar to Regular Sparring but it consists more of a series of back and forth combinations, whereas regular sparring is more unpredictable or random. Pro sparring can be a set number of strikes, such as 2 for 2 or 3 for 3, or as in this video an unknown set but back and forth.
What I often notice around the gym is people always doing regular sparring. While there is nothing wrong with that I think it is also good to incorporate different types of sparring such as hard, light, pro and defensive. This will help keep all of your skills sharp.
Anyways Enjoy….(I’ve seen this probably a hundred times…)[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nBoQgeKP-0&feature=related]
