I was about 12 or 13 aswell.. Got beat the punch for two rounds by a kid a few years older, few inches shorter, and a few pounds lighter. This would go on for the next four years. I was never knocked down or hurt in sparring, but am grateful that I was sparring with guys older, better, and more expierienced.
Well in the gyms where I trained and my brothers did thats how it went with some of the guys who walked in thinking they were badass my older brother used to bully the new guy something serious.
