How long do I have to practice for before I can have a proper fight?

You will learn everything you need to know to have a proper practice fight in your first session. You will learn the on guard position, footwork, how to keep the correct distance and how to hit your opponent safely. You will then be able to have a practice fight and, depending on numbers and how quickly everyone has picked up the essentials, you may be able to fight on the electric scoring apparatus used in competitions.
