Sanda is a modern form of competition. It consists of kicks, punches, and projections, with accent on stances. The training is technical, based mainly on projections. The efficiency of Sanda lies in its two folded approaches : kicks / punches when partners are far from each other and projections for close range.

This form of fighting is practiced with boxing gloves, teeth and leg protection. The sensitive parts of the body are also protected: women wear a breastplate and men a protective cap.
