Re: Got my ass kicked in sparring by a 13 year old last night!!!
Now don't judge too much. If that 13 y/o were big for his age and were trying to take his head off, it's quite possible a grown man could get careless and drop the kid.
I'm thinking a 13 y/o MIke Tyson probably would have given me a lesson in humility.
Although, I am the smallest person in my team of competitors (140 lbs) and in my 30s, I also get picked automatically to spar with a kid, or a girl. Obviously I work my defence and hold back on the punches, but I can relate to the awkwardness of being that guy. Sometimes, the only options are A: let them tee off on you and look bad, or B: hit them back with hard shots and look like a dick.
