    I fuckin hate sparring new fighters with less than 2 months training under their belt.

    Fuckin no head gear, we're workin on footwork and movement (bob and weave). My new partner thinks we're in a street fight and starts whailing on me. I can understand if we're wearing head gear and the hitting is mutual.

    Ive been doing MT for a while (several years) and always encounter this. I just never rant. But now that my nose has been broken 3 times I feel I have to rant.

    We dont throw knees or roundhouses usually, just a push kick or push knee to throw them off.

    I just stop the action and say, "lets turn it down a notch" and usually they comply.

    I usually just take mount and crush my fists in the neck or the back with a triangle and let them squirm.. or knee on belly, hands behind the head pulling... or an achilles lock at about 200% speed to hear the sounds they make

    I dont like hurting people. I'm still not sure what the hell I am even doing training.

    We usually stay standing. Depends on the tyoe of parneter I have.
    The new students cant grapple yet, so we keep it standing. I wish tho>

    Yeah, hard body blows like a couple of uppercuts to the sternum or hook rib shots, usually slows them down. But sometimes as I am coming in theymjust start throwing haymakers.:run:

    One lands out of six punches. That one creates wurls.

    Why don't you wear equipment when sparring?

    I'm new to stand up game, and whenever my instructor says we're sparring we put on gloves and headgear...

    By "sparring" do you just mean "practicing technique"?

    I sparred my instructor last night, I had headgear, he didn't... At first I thought I would hurt him, but afterwards I learned you have to actually hit someone in the head to hurt them... This was only my 2nd time sparring, and he has 20 years fight experience.

    I'm glad I wear the headgear...

    When we are "light sparring" (focusing on technique, footwork, headwork, and bob-weave) we dont wear and gear, maybe a mouthpeice. Still, the nubs like to throw heavy wide hooks.

    When its heavy sparring. We got full headsets and mouthprieces (sometimes chest gaurds). Thats when we kick it up a knotch. Still, no havey hitting. But ya know.

    I got no problem with headgear. It gets annoying after a round or two. The sweat keeps the gear moving, but it allows us to feel hits.

    I usually go with no head gear.

    Had a new guy who outweighed me by about 80lbs just lay in my guard and try to stack me and collar choke me for about 5 minutes with no attempt to pass. It can get annoying when people try to win in practice and not learn.

    A few sharp jabs to the nose usually settles people down we always spar in headgear though. The worst thing is when you get caught with a cross or hook and the headgear slides around and smushes your nose.

    Its not ballet, just hit them harder.

    I always go at the speed my partner wants to go. If he is a shitty boxer and wants to go 110% then I eat his lunch.

    If hes better than me and wants to go 110% then I realize I'm not wearing a tutu and I get over it :dunno:

    funny how you mention this. At my gym, most people that spar never use headgear....always mouthpiece though...anyways, i guess its now manditory to wear headgear cause some fucking stupid noobs started sparring ands i guess one of them got KO'd....
    Fucking gay now gotta wear headgear :(
    and i know what you mean about new guys going all out in a "practice" drill or "light" sparring.
    My sack was black for almost a month from this one idiot who teep'd me super hard right in the jewels doing a drill.
    Shit sucks.

    Headgear doesn't really do much to keep your brain from getting rattled. Its mainly to protect you from cuts and too many bruises. Even then a lot of times you can still feel the other dude's knuckles on your head and end up with a bruise.

    Yeah it sucks lol. Wasn't there a study where they found headgear to be less protective than not wearing it. People were actually getting more damage and some deaths because of it? It was a long time ago since I heard it, and could have been bullshit. I never really find it that helpful, but that's me.
