Fight with foam sticks
The use of foam sticks as a form of sports competition can improve speed and motor coordination in the execution of aikido techniques. Adopting this form of competition can help to reduce the number of people giving up training in martial arts. This rivalry can be an alternative to martial arts sports, which can put the fighter’s health at risk. A fight with foam sticks can improve the ability to avoid both bumps and collisions with specific objects and is an attractive form of competition, essential for motor safety improvement both in trainees and coaches.
