so i sparred for my first time this morning (ive been training muay thai since the end of July) and i really enjoyed it. We went about 8 3 minute rounds with diff. partners. Have a couple of questions, i felt like my technique my first round or so was a little sloppy but as i got used to dealing with pressure from the other guy i feel it got a little better, is that normal? second i didnt land any huge shots but i did land some pretty clean jabs, crosses and a couple of leg kicks i felt very uncomortable throwing hooks and uppercuts cuz i felt to exposed, what can i do to improve in that area? also i have a tendency to back straight up when dealing with pressure and as we worked our way through the rounds i tried hard to circle or clinch when i was getting overwhelmed, is there anything i can do to work on evasive tactics to make the other guy miss? all in all i felt very satisfied with my performance given that it was my first time i am sure i did not win any of the rounds but i do feel i put up a good fight and it was a great eye opener for me to see what i need to work on. thanks in advance for any advice.
