    Seen my karate instructor spar at home, been kicked round the room sparring with him at home. I've never seen my judo instructor spar, but that's almost certainly because I'm a noob at it and have only been to beginner's classes so far. I've never seen the university karate instructor spar and am aware of the implications.

    i spar him (or get pwnd by him) all the time.

    i've only seen him go really hard when he fights his nephew full contact. they get pretty brutal on eachother.

    As an instructor I spar with my students every class--it's one of the selling points, as I see it.

    As for sparring my instructor, I have none some light/no-contact sparring with him a couple of times but that is it. However, he typically only does full contact sparring these days, and only with his most senior students (which I don't qualify as yet), as other people tend to get seriously injured. Honestly, I can't blame him because he hits like a freight train and he is the faster fighter I have seen--I don't particularly want to spar him at anything other than light/no-contact.

    I did not say it was my instructor, but I heard a lot of peple complain about that. It seems that MMA instructors will spar and roll with students, but Karate guys are reluctant to do it. I personally train people in MMA, I spar and roll with them all the time. If you can't do it then you should not be teaching it, unless you are old or injured.

    I get wrecked by mine all the time. Surprisingly enough, when I was younger, My Kuk Sool Won instructor also used to spar with us.


    Now lovely Lucifer, in hell so stark
    King, and lord of sin and pride
    With some mist his wits make dark.
    He send thee grace to be thy guide


    HE LOOKS LIKE A TINY BEAR MIXED WITH A CAT, AND THAT IS THE MEANEST ANIMAL MIXTURE EVER, BEAR FOR FUCKING STRENGTH, AND CAT FOR FUCKING MEAN!!! ************.

    Ten at once, or one at a time sparring? Just asking.

    Sparring generally implies two people unless otherwise specified. But yes, I have participated in medium-contact multiman drills where he was the one, and I was part of the multi. It hurts a lot.

    Everywhere I've trained the instructors have happily sparred. Except during my brief walk on the LARP side when I was 14

    Outside of Aikido I have sparred every instructor I have ever had.
