Does it hurt when you get hit?

Not when the correct technique is used for hitting, and when the hit is only attempted at the correct distance. We take great care over teaching the correct distance and hitting technique so that you do not hurt each other. Occasionally you will receive a hard hit, but you will rarely end up with anything more than a small bruise.
