    Hmmm.. with girls like that
    You know, some people just can't take the pressure of getting hit. I know we all try our best to ease people into it but some people just don't want to do it.

    Zendokan, I'm that guy too. What is your size? I'm curious if its just a habit of instructors to pick smaller guys to do that or if it is something specific about me.

    I'm 5"11 , 220 lbs and look like someone who will hit your head off with one strike if you piss me off.
    Most people are intimitated when they are paired the first time with me, but than I start to talk, crack some jokes and smile. It,s more my relaxed and calm manner that does it. I think that this is more important than how you look.

    Afterwards they always say that I look like a grizzly bear, but act like a teddybear.

    In fact, she did last night. I know the girl outside of the gym(she's a friend of my wife), so I asked how the rest of her Saturday was after training. This conversation follows-

    Her: *accusingly* Oh, well, I tried to eat twice and threw up both times and my friend's a nurse and she told me I had a concussion, so I had to stay up for 12 hours.(she LOVES getting herself worked up by attempting self-diagnosis on wikipedia)

    Me: ...I did NOT hit you hard enough to give you a concussion.

    Her: Well it looks like you did!

    Me: Really? I'm pretty sure you sticking your chin out, leaving your neck stiff as a board, and having your jaw hanging wide open did it, actually.

    After which she grumbled and walked off and avoided me for the rest of the night. I'd facepalm, but who knows, I might give myself a concussion.

    It sounds like its going to be one of those things you're just going have to to stay out of. I mean, you did help her, and i assume she has had gone through adequate enough training to start sparring, so this is something she's going to have to go through on her own. I can see this turning out 1 of 3 ways, She might quit, Toughen up and actually start improving her game and realize that she is going to be hit, or just be one of those people that comes in and trains/conditions but never spars.

    I would never spar her again, even if my coach asks me to. At least until she has (wo)manned up. I don't know her personally but it sounds like she might take advice from the wrong people and might come up and bite you in the ass someday. (complex medical diagnosis from a nurse, for example)

    I agree with D. The conversation is over. We had a woman and Man in our gym just like this and it almost fucked up the gym. Don't waste your time you tried and this could go south real quick. If you were the instructor I'd tell you something different.

    about what I figured. I'm going to talk to my coach at my next convenience about it. He's probably figured it out on his own anyway.

    I'd direct her to this thread. Then ask her to spar you again.

    See if she learned anything.
