How does a "caring" learner spar?

It is tough being at an IB school.  Bentley consistently demonstrates himself to be a caring learner.  But what to do with that when you enter the sparring ring?

When Bentley is sparring Daniel it seems early on like Daniel has the upper hand, due largely to his confidence.  But once Bentley loses his self consciousness (and concern for his opponent's welfare) he shows himself very capable with his high roundhouse kick!
