Default how do you spar in your gym

i have been to gyms where sparring is more of a learning drill and its taken easy and bombs arent being thrown... but i have also been to gyms where its war. what do you think is the right mentality to sparring?

Where i train we generally adapt to each other. If someone takes it easy you take it easy, if someone throws bombs you throw back. If you spar with someone on a lower level you go easy. Sometimes we do drills where you're not supposed to hit hard. At other times we decide beforehand that we are gonna go all out.

Yeah that tends to happen a lot. The new guys are anxious or something, they go into the ring all tense and start throwing bombs.

I can do it either way as long as i know what is going to happen, what i dont like is when a guy tells you "let's go easy" and then tries to take you head off.

I usually spar with heavier guys so iam used to taking shots from guys about 155-165, i'm 135 so it gives me confidence that i can take whatever guys my own size are throwing at me. What i don't like is to fight guys with a much better reach but i guess it's good to learn to do that too.

It's lucky for us small guys we atleast have speed advantage otherwise we would have no chance in hell

Same here.

With some of the newer guys I try to help em relax a little, I'll let them throw while I work on defense, footwork etc... and I'll throw fast punches without much power.

With the more advanced guys we usually go all out if we're at a similar weight.
