In 2 step sparring:
- The attacker will not need to land into walking ready stance following the front snap kicks on the first two sequences (unlike in 3 step sparring) but move straight into the second attack. As the student progresses from 3 step to 2 step and their sparring knowledge improves, we look to see a faster more fluid two attacks moving forward.
- Also after each counter attack the defender is expected to return to a right l-Stance ready to perform the next combination in the sequence.
