    Before sparring I hit myself wth the gloves, I also smell the gloves (it helps, don't know why). Also, when I get hit real good, I say '**** yeah!'. Although it's really just my way of saying 'Ouchieouchiouchi!'

    It's all about the clinch. The clinch, I said.

    Its a gift. I'm a shitty fighter so I try to be funny.

    Glad you liked it. Don't think too much about this stuff (the original topic) its not really an activity that requires much in depth thought.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    Those gloves are awfully light for sparring, especially when one or more of the participants is a beginner. As for your concerns, you will get used to staring down punches and the pain of being hit will become familiar after a while (perhaps a long while, with MMA gloves). I would not reccommend saying anything when you get punched as that is creepy and requires you to open your mouth. You have a mouthguard, right?

    Leg kicks are not my province, but if you don't know how to check them you should learn that.

    Chuckling or laughing to yourself after taking a hard shot I do find to be helpful, but don't overdo it or you look like a reject from an anime.
    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."
    -A.J. Newton, Boxing.
