miche has a little shameless behaviour in the past
girls and muay thai

so how do you guys feel about girls training in muay thai? and I don't mean just for fitness or fun, but serious training? I've heard from a friend that when she spars there are some guys that are really good to spar with as they don't hold back, but they don't go all out..and there are some that completely wail on her.

oops..sorry, just realized this is in the wrong area of the forum..i'll move it somewhere else :P

Depends on the girl. A girl like gina carano could probably kick my ass violently.

But most girls I'd just spar up to their ability. I almost never go full force anyways because shit gets hurt and injuries happen like that. But if the girl could put it to me, I'd put it back as much as she wanted.

(i have never actually sparred with a girl)

I don't see that it's an issue. It's just good sportsmanship not to try to take your opponent's head off, unless you know them well and know they're all right with you going 100%.

I had to roll with a sweaty teenage kid with acne

If I had an attractive, feisty lass to roll with I might still do bjj.

I never like sparring with girls. Im a good sized dude and I generally have to take pretty much everything out of my strikes when I spar with females. Not trying to sound like a badass or anything, its just the nature of being larger and athletic (im 6'2, about 235 lbs., not fat). I feel like a major asshole if I accidently hurt my training partners. Im not some sexist asshole either, I dont like sparring with little dudes either. Same problem.

TBH I appreciate any training partner telling me how hard they're going to go.

Drills are not necessarily like "light live standup" or grappling drills with some resistance if you ask for it, or like full-on.

Whoever you are or wherever you train, it's assy if everybody else is going light for the purposes of a drill and you try to K someone the F O. If you hurt your sparring partners because you couldn't be bothered to tell them "I'm going to go 100%" then you're short a training partner. That makes a difference in a small gym.

I can't do it, there are some women in one of my Muay Thai classes. I don't spar with them anymore, no offense to women out there, but I felt was I was being attacked by my son. It's possible I'm just a big guy and was too concerned about hurting them.

They are very good though, I just can't bring myself to kick one of those girls haha, every single one of my senses tells me not to. My wife wants to start taking BJJ classes "together" but she's never been to a class in her life, which means I'd be in the beginners classes, I keep trying to tell her it's not a couple thing haha. We can do plenty together, martial arts is not one of them.

I'm sure I probably sound like a male chauvinist, but it's just my opinion, sorry Swp

None taken. I would not attempt to take a class where there was full on sparring with my husband. Also BJJ is not a good art for couples who are both beginners to take together, it's only for adaptation to the bedroom in that regard, IMO. If you both become very well versed in that art on your own, the picture may change a little.

Having said that, my husband is a good uke for my blossoming judo skills.

i hate when douchebags are trying to prove something by going 100% in light sparring. I'd do as the guy said earlier and just try to match their ability and be a bit challenging to help them improve. my gf and i spar and roll all the time. like this happy couple.
