I have noticed an issue in my sparring, when I close the range it is fairly normal to take a couple of knocks on my way in. Normally that is not an issue but when I am fighting some of the larger guys in my class I end up flinching when I get hit that slows me and gives them time to circle and avoid my advance. I am working on standard body hardening as well as slowly increasing my amount of "high" contact sparring.
