Re: Covering up During Sparring
Thanks for posting. I had this problem for a long time. I think part of the problem is just being afraid to get hit which many guys experience in sparring. My trainer used to spend rounds with my back to the corner - he would attack and try to keep me there. It did two things - one, got me comfortable with getting hit and two, taught me how to block, pick off, and parry punches. Most importantly I learned to parry, step, pivot, and counter - which is a technique I use all the time now especially with guys who apply a lot of pressure.
