Win like a man; lose like a man.

I fell pretty hard this time. Any thoughts? I think it's self-explanatory. How do you guys deal with it? How do you recover? How do you win? Etc. etc. etc.

Personally and this is just really with martial arts and boxing, i just get angry, lock myself away from the world, beat myself up (not literally lol) and come to the conclusion i didn't train hard enough and then start training with a vengeance.... and then get told not to overtrain........ and then laugh about it afterwards. It can be a vicious circle.

Learn from it. You learn more from defeat than victory.

man losing sucks. i hate that feeling, makes you depressed and hate the world. i don't know what to tell you about how to "cope" with it but i can tell you that it'll say a lot about your character if you use an L as motivation to train harder.

there's more to lose out there than just fights and i've taken a beating or two in sparring and, if you read close, you'll notice i said losing sucks not losing a fight sucks.

everybody loses, learn wat u can from it and move on. sulking isn't really going to help. i know its much easier said then done, but u learn a lot about urself after u lose.

think about the silver lining, when ur winning u naturally assume everything ur doing is right even though u prolly made mistakes. but when u lose, it forces u to re-evaluate how u fite. learn from it, make some adjustments and u'll be a better fighter from it.

-------------------------

well this thread is coping with losing a fight and how do you deal with losing a fight. If you cant handle losing a spar maybe boxing isnt for you, thats why these forums have no credibility because people like you who have no idea what there talkin about or no experience think they know everything.
