First: Never go 100%.

Second: Sometimes you have to let someone else set the pace.

Three: It’s okay to break rhythm.

You should never go 100% because that is the easiest way to injure your partner. If that happens, you will have to wait for them to heal and your sparring will not get better. If the skill difference is exceptional, then you may need to let your partner set the pace and power so that they are not overwhelmed. This will actually help you practice breaking their rhythm and confusing them while making more openings for striking.
