Knock her out and see what happens. Or you could work on your speed. You shouldn't have to use your superior power to beat up a little girl.

Speed drills work. (jabs in mirror... FASTER!!! pause between strikes, then EXPLODE!! Pull your hand back faster...) etc etc. It's all in your mind.

I've never done Muay Thai, but this whole thread has been reminding me of "that guy" at BJJ, probably new, probably a wrestler, who completely spazzes out and cranks on armbars. Personally, I'd rather have the sparring partner who's concerned about hurting me than the one who isn't.

I think those comparing concern in grappling to that in striking need to realize they are comparing apples to oranges. Puling punches is a lot different than cranking an elbow another few degrees.

if you find yourself losing your temper backoff. hold your punches, not your speed. you dont want to hurt your training partner too much, unless youre training for a fight . these thing should be predetermined before sparring.
a friend was sparring someone who was training for a fight. My friend knocked him out, and he learned he was not ready to enter the ring. So all-out fighting was a good thing in this case.

+I'm all for being concerned with your training partner's health - after all, if you aren't then someone's gonna get hurt and have to miss training.
Missing training = bad
When my folks pair up to spar, each pair sets the level of intensity/contact between themselves. The snake eaters know who they can let it all hang out with, the folks who don't want alot of contact feel safe.
What I really don't like are people who apologize when they are learning something new. Geez, if I thought you could do it perfectly the first time out do you think I'd have bothered to explain it?

Thinking back on it, I do say "sorry" a lot, but one time I puched a tiny woman in the stomach and floored her, so I'm still all man, right?
