Did you start out sparring with people that much bigger than you? Sparring should be started out slowly and worked into when going full contact. Start out with someone your size and weight or at least close to it. As you become more experienced with it, you get better and better. Its true we can't realistically kick oither people full force int he groin, gouge eyes, and kick out peoples knees while sparring. Sparring is to teach you overall good stand-up fighting skills, to learn what it's like to hit another person and also how to deal with getting hit yourself. Best thing to do is move. With me when I was just kickboxing, I found getting inside a taller person was good because I could tear up his ribs nad because his arms were longer, would often have to try and push me away which would open up his face for a good overhanf right.
