Went to my weekly boxing class last night. We were only two, and our coach asked us to spar a bit.

I'm not that good, I still a lot of training, especially cardio, but I landed a couple hits.

After one of the hits, the guy starts yelling and complaint that I was hitting too hard...

I tried telling him I'm sorry if I said and that I'm not trying to, and he kept whining.

The guy isn't as tall as me but he's well built.

What does he expect in boxing?

Some women would also get this wound up. It has nothing to do with gender 😂 it’s the person. It’s just their personality.

Lol, this reminds me of the days when I did Karate. When I started I would go too mad and too aggressive, and people complained.

The thing you have remember about sparring is that it's like play-fighting, only you take it seriously. It may be slightly different in something like boxing, but in Karate, the idea behind sparring was to train your striking /blocking techniques as well as getting used to different fighting styles... it was never about hurting or injuring your opponent.

I'm speculating, but if, you were using boxing as an outlet for all the stresses etc. in your every day life, it could be you're going a bit too hard and need to exercise more control; however, it this was the case, I'm sure your coach would have said something

My point is, if you're training in boxing, you have to expect to get hit. If you whinge about it, you need to leave.

Alternatively, If you can't control yourself when sparring, you need to leave.

Any (legitimate) fighting sport is about discipline and control, not wild aggression. It it's a wild hit, and he was injured in training, that could cause all sorts of problems. You improve your skills / reflexes / techniques by sparring, but you improve your striking strength with the punchbag.

Exactly this.
