I am ok with ok but you have to have allot of control and it takes some getting use to. In one of my clases we had half the people holding pads against their body and we were throwing punch combos. We would run to the next person ever 90 seconds. I am about 5,9 180 One guy was holding a pad and he was twice my size when I rotated the next person was a girl who was smaller than me and was probably 70 pounds lighter. I wasnt paying atention and hit the pad with a huge right cross and sent her half way across the room.

It is kinda an incinveinance because you have to hold back so much but I don't have a problem with girls in my class although I try to avoid trainning with them sometimes for the same reasons listed by other people.

oops..sorry, just realized this is in the wrong area of the forum..i'll move it somewhere else :P
honestly that's an oxymoron, they don't hold back but they don't go all out...
I got news for you, they are doing one or the other I mean the two terms are mutually exclusive
I think I know what overall point she was aiming at but I like women training
that's your big question and my answer is I like it, I like everyone training

We have a number of women at our gym that fight both pro and ammy. The same rules apply regardless of gender. Go as hard as your partner, let them know if you want to tone it down. Sparring with these women can be tough as they're very technical. They have no problem with bringing the pace and are willing to take a good hit. If you don't bring it they'll ruin your day!!

True but i am really not ok with hitting a girl. In sparring with a girl i just try and work on my defense but my gym does a good job keeping the girls separate from the guys and only sparing with each other so i don't have to worry too much.
