I spar a few girls at my dojang, they seemed to be very fast. So it was good training to get a contrast in style, i am one of the fastest guys in my school, but the girls are still faster most of the time.




Do you find thats because they are actually physically faster, or because their movements are naturally more graceful making them "swifter" ???

Pound Em!! lol. jk. Hit them but not like a man. However you should hit them enough that you arent robbing them of good training and giving them false confidence.

Then you arent helping them Crabby! Do you like the girls in your class? If so, it would be better to see them lose in the gym and improve than get beat up outside it right? Dont cheat them, hit em.

Im in a funny mood today. I accidently told hedkicker he's old! So much so that Ed reprimanded me for it, though I meant it as a compliment. But seriously, hit them. Dont lessen there training by holding back and giving them false confidence.

Chen isn't advocating beating people up, he's saying that you should use the same contact you use with other people, but still use the same respect and remember to fight to their level of ability. Not just to charge in throwing haymakers.

Remember that girl is there for a reason. If she has taken the liberty to compete in a tournament you should afford her the respect due to a competitor. If you see she is not a strong competitor you should push her and make her se what she is lacking. You should not have gone easy on her. Nor shold you go all out either. Get over yourself, she is a fellow marial artist, she is learning to handle herself, and if she can[t get the proper respect from her fellow artist than how is she going o learn to handle herself against a real assailant her means to due her erious harm?


At the school I practice in, we do olympic style sparring. While I do not go full out on the femal opponenets, I don't hold back much either. I do not use ful power in techniques, but I try to overwhelm them to see exactly how tey will react. Perhaps I am fortunae to have some real talented athletes in my school who give as good as they get. When they attack they are fully commited to scoring and landing that blow at full contact, their timing and foot work is so honed that they do not need to block, they use footwork to avoid and evade and strke back right when their opponenets are at their weakest.

Don't let your machismo blind you from the reason she is there, she is there to learn and you should help her by not disrespecting her by holding completely back.
