    So i am thinking about sprinting 3 times a week, 30 second sprints then walking back to the starting point then repeat, do you think that 3 times a week is too much ?
    Other days i would just do push ups or some light sparring.

    I like to do 3x a week personally. You'll have to try for yourself and see how you recover and how it affects your other training.

    depends on your goal and training volume (running mileage).

    for general fitness, i think 3x is too much. try twice a week and vary the distances and speed (e.g. 400m x 4 reps in max speed that you can finish the distance and not be too winded to do more reps, 200m x 6 reps, 100m x 8 reps all out)

    lol just push ups on the other days? do you train at a gym to do light sparring if so then take advantage of what they have there as far as equipment goes can do much better than just push ups

    This. Without knowing what your goal is, and your previous training, it's impossible to really recommend something.
