The guilt of hitting a training partner doesn't allow me to test my power. I've been working on my technique for many years, I've obsessed over form/technique, it's something I pride myself on. However, every time I spar I never allow myself to go over 40%-50%. I also pull the punches back on impact.

Are there any tricks I can apply to my psyche to stop being such a pussy when it comes to trading shots with training partners? I have the Uriah Hall syndrome! Phone Post 3.0

Spar with the gym bully that always goes 100%, when he cracks you hard you won't have a hard time going back hard at him.  And lol at "devastating power".

I'm not saying I want hurt someone, not at all. I just want to experience what it would be like if I traded shots with someone without holding back.

Most of the time guys don't respect my striking because they expect it to be light. I have popped heads back with jabs on many occasions, though. Phone Post 3.0

I know you probably won't respect what I say seeing as I'm not a green-namer but I've spent my entire martial arts career trying to replicate what I saw from Mike Tyson. Phone Post 3.0

Would you say your style is impetuous, and your defense is impregnable?

Not sure if troll .... If not troll OP has humungus balls for creating thread titled "I have devastating power"

That said, the question of how much do you put in to sparring sessions is a valid one.

OP, define devastating knockout power? I'm guessing you came to the conclusion because you can hit a punchbag pretty hard? Phone Post 3.0

Why? I don't understand. Anyone who has spent 6-10 years training the same techniques over and over should be able to produce KO power. No? I have rocked guys in training before and felt bad after the fact when I saw them sitting down holding their head.

Someone make a posts claiming to have an ability that takes practice to achieve, MUST BE TROLL!

I'll try to record a video the next time I'm at the gym. You guys don't upset me at all bros, you're only motivating me to train harder. Thanks!!! Phone Post 3.0
