Perhaps 100 is too many.

But, step 1: Breathe.

Right now in my class my best chance against an opponent (except Sensei) is closing the distance. We have one person who has (in my opinion) phenomenal kicks. I get in side (and I can stay there) and shut them down. Another guy I need to get in and out quick using angles (I impressed myself early on when I out grappled him, I was a white belt and he was green).

Now if it is Sensei, my best bet is to run away as fast as I can. I also know his tell. When he holds back, he giggles, then he quickly submits you. He is very good at sparring at his students level so his student can learn. Both stand up and grappling. He still does not let his opponent win, but you learn.

I have just learned how each of them fights. I still lose mostly, but we all seek to learn.

I have a question.
When sparring (in class), do you try to go for the point? Or, do you try to work in kata bunkai?

Groin! Always go for the groin! Or eyes and/or throat... those are acceptable targets, too.

I try not to do that sparring. But, in real (unrestricted) fights, I can be a bit dirty in what I do.

I was being facetious.
