CONTACT SPARRING – More experienced chessboxers and anyone who wants to train for competitive action has the option to move on to full-contact sparring via light-sparring under the strict guidance of experienced coaches.
CHESS – Play or enjoy some tactics training during several three-to-five minute recovery periods during the class. Think you can’t play chess? We guarantee to change your mind!
