Thanks everyone for the comments!
i can understand why you'd be worried about your lack of sparring.going a month without spariing will **** your timing up.we trained 4 times a week and sparred every time as far as can remember.
sunday mornings were all sparring,so we coulndn't **** about the night before !!
is there a reason your trainer doesn't have you sparring more ??
