What is Sanda / Chinese Boxing?

IMG_8321
Sanda or Sanshou “unsanctioned fight” is known today as a combat sport involving striking, wrestling, and throws. Sanda competitions typically have two 2-minute rounds and competitors earn points for their ability to land punches and kicks as well as execute throws. “Critical strikes” to the back of the head, backside, and groin are illegal as well as elbow and knee strikes. Competitors wear protective head, body, leg, and hand gear.
