MMA Sparing Questions

For starters, I know nothing about mma training so if these sound like dumb questions they probably are.

How hard do you go when you are sparring? (eg. 80%)

What gear do you wear?

Do people ever get KO'd while sparring?

Is there always a doctor (or person with medical knowlegde) present during sparring?

MMAPassion has a little shameless behaviour in the past
1)Sparring you go 50%
2)Depending on what martial art you are doing could be Headgear, Gloves, Mouth Guard, Handwraps, Shin Guards etc.
3)People have been KO'd while sparring catching someone with an unintentional shot but it doenst happen that offen.
4)Yes your coach, Training partner's at my gym we have a qualified medical suporvisor in the gym.

All answers are what we do at our gym:

How hard do you go when you are sparring? up to you, training partner, and coach to work this out. We usually go 60%-65%.

What gear do you wear? If just standup: 16oz gloves, cup, mouthpeice, shin guards, sometimes headgear. Just grappling: cup... Full MMA style sparring (standup & grapple): MMA gloves, cup, mouth peice sometimes (depends how hard we are going.

Do people ever get KO'd while sparring? It happens, not alot but sometimes if someone gets caught just right or isnt paying attention, lights out. I personally have been "flashed" over but not KO'd in sparring.

Is there always a doctor (or person with medical knowlegde) present during sparring? All of our instructors are trained in at least some medical. Anywhere from first aid/cpr to a paramedic.

Hope this helps

we always go 100% power at sparring. We wear head gear, mouth piece, shin guards, wrist wraps and 16 oz gloves. No medical guys there, and only 2 guys have ever been Ko'd and that was from high kicks.

gonzalez89 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
1) it depends who im sparring with but usually around 60-70 percent...sometimes some people go to hard thought (85-90?)
2)i use 10-12 gloves for thai sparring and mma sparring gloves for mma sparring...and shinpads always as well as a cup and gum shield
3)i knocked my partner down (but didnt KO him) once with a spinning backfist...were good friends and we laughed about it...apart that ive never seen a KO

also can i ask a question? im doing semi pro mma with a 1-0 record and i was wondering how many times i should be sparring a week...im currently doing 3 5 min mma sparrign rounds twice a week...is this enough to make progress?
