On sand or grass?On sand you could accidentaly kick sand into your sparring mates eyes,but on the other hand,the grass gives your gi a nice green shade.Which would you preffer?Just thinking :p

That's a toughie. I've only sparred in the school and at tournaments so far. I've never full out sparred outside. But, I would go for grass and wear clothes I didn't mind getting all green. Besides, getting sand out of your hair is no picnic.

Grass all the way. Sand seems softer... 'til you land hard. And you lose traction in the sand.

A cow pastures and polo fields are real soft. Sometimes they even have some extra cushining.

Training on grass is good, it is harder to do kick combo, but alot softer to land when doing a breakfall. It is a good exeperience to train on different grounds, since a real fight can occur anyway.
