I kept bugging my coach about sparring, and I guess I was the "kid with an angry face". I did sparring with another novice in an MMA/self-defence gym fairly regularly and I taught I was "good", but in fact I developed many bad habits (inappropriate switch-hitting, hands low, too square, slip on the inside, etc, well you see the type). This gym was really no good for boxing.

So he put me up against this 40 years old guy in those reaaaaaallly worn down boxing shoes.To make a Long story short, I blocked every shot with my chin.

I was more humbled then hurt, but I still had a headache for days afterward and whenever I got to do sparring at that gym afterward I get really scared.

I was 17, couple months in, doing drills with another guy, suddenly he decided to go apeshit, and I was getting my bearings sort of waved him away for a second, dropped my hands turned away, BOOM big right hand to the face (or at least thats what it felt like), maybe 2 I don't remember, but I had a splitting headache and was nauseous, threw up then lay down in bed in the dark (similar to a migraine I remember). Saying to myself "this isn't for me, never again". Think I trained the next Monday! This was Friday I think.

Sparred my buddy who was over 100 fights, this was after I had a fight. I was kind of out of shape, because my ship just got back from being underway. Anyway, he hit me with a counter left hook, and i lost my equilibrium. I stayed up, but it was a good shot.

Sparred a 195 pounder as a 143 pounder myself for two rounds. Thought I would do okay with my speed. I got completely beat on for 2 rounds. He wouldn't let up at all

I'm big, experienced, and I can go light with folks pretty well; so I get put in with a lot of new guys.
My worst experiences have been getting thrown in with noobs who try to kill me and getting yelled at if I get any payback. Unfortunately, I don't have the best temper in the world - but I've been really trying to work on it lately.

Other than new guys, my worst experiences with experienced guys have been:

Broke my ribs 3 times - first time was judo practice gone bad, second 2 times were muay thai knees

Had a spazzy mma guy tackle me while doing "standup" sparring. He didn't like a technique his own coach had me doing earlier, to get out of his guard so he was trying to get payback. His coach stopped me before i lit him up. a week later he pulled a cheap shot, grabbed my shirt, and slammed me on a hardwood floor, giving me retinal damage (since healed). Never went back to that class, because I was afraid I'd literally kill him. I was a lot bigger with better striking technique and enough takedown defense to keep off the ground when I wasn't being blindsided. It wouldn't have been pretty, but it would've been settled. Used to shake when I thought about him.

Another time a friend asked me to work with his student. I was to feed him stand up, he was to defend and try to set up counters & throws. We weren't on mats, so the throws weren't supposed to be completed. He was using fingerless gloves, i was using huge 20+oz safety gloves. He grabbed the cuff of my glove, swept my feet, and spiked me hard on my shoulder. Knew I had 30 seconds left till shock wore off; so I played it off like nothing happened so we could start back up. Got him in a clinch and said "mother f***er" as I grabbed his head in a clinch and let loose with full power knees to his face. After the first barely landed, he stood straight up with fear in his eyes, pushed me off and literally ran out of the training area. Got kicked out of that gym for a little while after that one.

Some little guys like to go full out on big guys to make them "feel" it. They're fast enough to land, most of the time they wear small gloves (talking 14oz or less), and they're bringing it - so it hurts. You call them on it and they deny it, saying you should be able to take it. They're freaking quick so going light slows you down enough not to catch 'em. You stalk them and you're the bully because you're heavier.

I try to be careful of who I spar with these days. I'm also on a kick lately where I'm just trying to keep it fun. That means covering up and taking my ego out of the equation. So far so good: feed new guys just enough to keep them busy and spend most of the time covering up.

At my age, I just don't have time for anymore serious injuries.
