    When you become able to learn even when sparring with very weaker opponents without hurting them and helping them to learn too, you'll learn twice as much in each class. You'll also be a valuable partner in training.

    I'm quite clueless in striking, but I'm pretty sure this apply as well in striking sparring as it does in grappling. It's not always about winning, pushing yourself to the limits or improving your conditioning. You may help them by exploring their openings, showing their bad posture and blocking their poor techniques. Being gentle all the time, please. When you need to explain something to other person, you also learn a lot more.

    Also, try not be that sucker who always spar full force regardless of the training partner and end up hurting everybody. People will start to avoid training with you. Maybe you just need to go to competition more often to calm down in training.

    simply put, I was raised to never hit a girl. How do you break that?
    She voluntarily signed up to train in a hard-contact striking style. It's pretty safe to assume that she knows getting punched in the face is part of the package.

    She's there to learn how to fight.

    You may think you're being chivalrous by hesitating and refusing to work with her, but in reality, you're being an ungentlemanly dickwad.

    Thai's generally don't spar hard in the gym, I've heard its to avoid injury and animosity among teammates.

    Just don't go as hard as you would normally.

    Probably true, but it's mainly because they fight so often that sparring isn't really all that necessary. Except when they just box, though. Then they tear each other the hell up.

    I train with a girl and she is tough as nails. As what others have said... you're doing her a disservice if you do not spar with her as you would with a male. You shouldn't go at full strength obviously (unless the instructor says so) but don't just stand there being a human punching bag and not strike her back... I doubt she'd be in a striking/sparring class if she didn't want to get hit.
