Off the top of my head a couple things that might help out.
1) Ask the guy you're sparring with to lighten up a little. Its hard to focus on technique when you're getting hammered.
2) After getting hit with the same set-up.combo repeatedly, ask your partner how to block/counter or deal with it.
3) See if you can spend more time working on individual techniques. Fot the same reason mentioned in #1 above. Focus on punching, kicking, feints, and combos.
