Make You Humble

Enduring an onslaught is a prerequisite for victory, but lasting many rounds by merely enduring ensures a loss after a prolonged beating.

Sparring takes you down dark alleys, confronting you with skillfully applied attacks you must read quickly, defend properly, and ideally counter with your own attack. You'll also need to test your opponent by probing for possible avenues of attack so you can successfully end this confrontation.

Dark alleys are lawless and any type of attacker could be lurking, so best you become accustomed to and comfortable handling all comers.

Your training has been competent and wise, from which you know what to do. What you face is neither novel nor overwhelming, just a sustained barrage. It's nothing you can't handle, though were it easy, all would undergo it and reap the rewards; few do.

Absorbing lighter shots and their accumulating damage is a trade-off when avoiding powerful strikes that would end your fight with an immediate knockout.

No flailing or desperate attempts that are unlikely to work, but conservation of movement and energy towards successful ends to survive, recover, and trust in the gameplan of winning rounds while looking for opportunities to finish the fight and own victory.
