How do you deal with over zealous noobs in sparring? should I match his intensity and go in for the kill?

There is nothing wrong with having a quick chat with the guy you are about to spar beforehand. You shouldn't want to dent a novice's confidence too much in sparring or precious few will end up taking up the sport. But you're the mug if the novice comes away thinking or worse saying that they got the better of you.

There is nothing wrong with saying something like 'lets just take it easy and work on technique, I won't throw anything heavy unless you do matey'......
