If you get whooped do not be discouraged! If anything view it posotivley. You are not supposed to go in there and not get hit and destroy everyone. When you get whooped in sparring you get better and what not. I usually laugh and smile when I get hit. I remember my first time, I was put up against all older (22+ years) experinced fighters. I got whooped for 3-4 rounds and I had a blast man!
