Well you need to put on the headgear and this will improve your sparring so you don't get hit so hard :laugh: :cheeky4: new to sparring? my first time i went all out throwing straight rights knowing that was my strongest punch. i wanted to take the guys head off. I came out there with a bruise on the bridge of my nose. Just stay calm you're gonna get nervous looking at the guy ready to spar. Once it starts just stay calm. Work at your pace don't let him dictate it. And don't forget your jab! jab is the most important punch in boxing. Jab jab jab. Just pepper it and get it out there. Annoy him with it and then do the advanced punches when you feel its the right time.

new to it

dont know what to expect here man. what does this feel like? anything to expect?
I just recenty started sparring after training for about 3 months. First off, it's normal to be nervous about it. First time I sparred was with my coach and as we put on the head gear he just asked if I was nervous and I was honest - I said "no". He replied that if your not nervous your first time sparring than there's something wrong with you - so, as expected, there's something wrong with me. :D

I doubt you'll start out formal training by sparring. When you do spar remember to keep your eyes up on your opponent. Keep your hands up. That part should be automatic when you start sparring, anyway.

It's fun as hell. I don't tee off on a guy when sparring. I'm a heavyweight, too, and if I connect with a guy's noggin at full force it's very impolite. Based on my limited exposure, it's bad etequite to tee off when sparring.

Somebody tell the new guy that sparred me it was impolite cause he gave me a bruise under my eye :laugh: :thumbsup: He hit hard so me as a veteran had to hit him harder.
