There does seem to be a little bit if confusion around what constitutes “sport” and what is allowed in the various tiers. Here is the English Government’s specific guidance for “Contact Combat Sports” … which is clear that: 1) “non-contact, socially distanced activities” are permitted in ALL tiers (Phase 0); 2) Equipment training is only permitted in Tier 1 areas (Phase 1); 3) Contract training is not permitted anywhere: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-grassroots-sports-guidance-for-safe-provision-including-team-sport-contact-combat-sport-and-organised-sport-events#contact-combat-sport-framework
