I would have to ask why this dumbass was going full force on a woman sparring...

He wasn't. They weren't sparring. They were holding padded shields for the express purpose of getting hit hard during practice, so they could learn to handle the impact. She didn't understand the purpose of the exercise at first, they were simply told to hold the pad and brace for their partner to strike it and she was the first of the pair to hit the shield. When it was her turn she couldn't even stay up despite her partner being her own approximate size.

Ok, yeah, whatever. Only thing I will say in response to that is that she likely wasn't holding the pads correctly, bracing herself. That was never a problem with the females in my dojang. Even a big strong guy will get knocked on the floor if they don't brace themselves properly.

Sparring, yeah, different story.
