ATA Combat Sparring Curriculum

July 28, 8am-11am
What sets good fighters apart from great fighters is their strategy and ability to adapt quickly. We all know that winning is a result of efficient and consistent training, not brute force. Therefore, the Training Department is proud to introduce the official ATA Combat Sparring Curriculum. Our team has gone back to the drawing board and sought the insight of multiple time world champions to provide you with the curriculum rooted in results, not theory. As a result, we’ve simplified the process to teach your students detailed drills and effective strikes that are fun and proven to work in the academy and the ring. Register today for this 4-hour seminar on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, during the World Conference.
