You still haven't clarified the sparring match. Learning occurs from light tippy tap to full contact. Even so called "friendly sparring" which was never clarified can be different levels of contact. You say haymakers the guy may say he was told to work on hooks by the coach.

Respect is earned through honest communication. Clearly the two of you had different ideas of what was to be accomplished in the session. All you have to do is chat with the guy briefly and respectfully before, after, or during the session in order to get on the same page. If you find he is dishonest after doing so then simply don't spar with him again. End of.

Talk, and if that doesn't work then maybe you shouldn't be sparring with them.

my advice is still best advice. make him hurt so bad that he pisses blood and his only dream is of a fist hitting his broken face over and over, until you dont have to see him again cos hes assigned to a mental institution.

First thing? Ask him to ease up a little. If he doesn't listen, then figure out something else, whether it's talking to your coach or just flat-out avoiding the guy. Or just counter him. You said they were all big and telegraphed, throw something straight down the middle.

Avoid him in sparring, a noob's goal should be to obtain a competent level without getting badly injured. Whenever a white belt so much as looks at my legs i tap, your ego is not worth setting back your training by weeks.
Beginner classes are filled with weekend warriors and guys who will never get the basics down but want to prove something by treating sparring like a fight. Talking to them achieves nothing, you avoid potential injuries until you have surpassed their level and can thus handle them without their spazzyness fucking you up.
Full contact sparring before you are even able to counter someone throwing pure haymakers is a colossal waste of time."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

1) Talk to him
2) If communications don't work:
- "push" teep (when his hand is still going backwards to "load" the haymaker)
- "block" teep (when the haymaker is in front motion)
- Sortir en arrière combatante (a.k.a. going backwards while simultainius kicking roundhouse and low-kicks)Originally Posted by Jiujitsu77Originally Posted by HumanzeeOriginally Posted by jk55299 on Keysi Fighting Method
