Any Tae Kwon Do sparring tips for me?
Hi everyone, I'm a white belt with a yellow stripe in Tae Kwon Do. My friend is a second degree black belt, and he is about 4 inches taller than me, and has a much longer reach. I am able to kick as powerfully as he can, however, everytime I kick, it is much harder for me to reach him. We often spar for fun, but when we do spar, we do not wear gear, since we feel that gear is kind of bulky to wear and move around in. My question is, what kind of tips would anyone give me to last longer against a match with my friend? I am 5ft7 and 150lbs, and my friend is 5ft11 and 160 lbs.
