Damn, its discouraging getting your ass kicked.
ask to be paired with someone else. complain to the instructor that he isn't sparring, he is trying to hurt you. TBH there is a difference. If your nose is getting busted, first punch, there is something wrong with the training matchup.

Seriously, let the instructor know. You aren't there to build some other douchebag's confidence while you rack up injuries and medical bills.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
