I try to spar pretty regularly, but I'm still new at it. I flinch pretty badly. I get shut down in flurries of punches. My question is this: what should I concentrate on achieving during those flurries? Move my head? Stay calm? Try to actively defend? Try to counter? Should I let the flurry happen in the first place? I know I should be jabbing a hellofalot to shut down ridiculous wailing like that on me, but I'm such a newbie right now that I just don't quite understand the science of boxing. Right now I'm trying to move my head, keep my hands up, and jab, but I'm blinded by the punches. I'll be sparring regularly still, but I'd like to have some input on stuff I can work on while in the ring. Thanks. Sorry if this has been beaten to death.
