Yeah, I know what you mean. This guy just seemed like a special case.
I suppose it all depends on the person.

There are a few people in my enshin club that are just not that great at fighting.
The one kid is uncoordinated, tires, easily, does not fully grasp the the techniques, I kinda coach him along. I am not that good so all I can tell him is to be tougher and I try to get him to use more techniques.
The woman came from another krotty style but she is coordinated enough. I just plod forward occasionally throwing punches but just constantly moving froward and eating everything she throws. I try to get her to hit me a little harder.

I used to do something similar, this is what ended up making me coach during these types o f matches.

Knowing that you can take a hard hit and keep going is one of the most important things hard sparring can teach you.

Boy I wish I had some good input on this subject, but I suck at sparring with people that can't take a hit. I'm too used to sparring with Kat, where I have to desperately shoot in techniques as quick as I see them, which results in me hitting harder than I intend.Ranked #9 internationally at 118lbs by WIKBA http://www.womenkickboxing.com/wikba...rch%202009.htm

One thing I like to do, in addition to the good things already mentioned here, is to throw a combo or technique over and over again to get them to learn to defend against that particular technique. For example, if I keep tagging them with an overhand right after they throw a jab, it teaches them to bring the hand back fast enough so that they won't get countered.
If they get caught by it 3 times, then I verbally tell them what I'm doing and offer a solution. Then I do it again and hope they can at least try to apply that quick lesson.
Of course, the overhand right isn't knocking them out, but it's making contact enough that they get the message - GET YOUR HAND BACK.

I seldom find anybody worse than me, but I use the opportunity to teach a bit.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

I just perform the form at the same slow spee-
I usually opened up a bit, relaxing my guard and strikes. This drew them in, and got them used to attacking. When they were more comfortable, I'd step up my strikes and blocks in speed and intensity. Over the course of a few weeks/months, they'd be more likely to put up a fight.
You still got the odd wallflower, but generally speaking it was just a matter of accustoming them to sparring with commitment.
