But if you treat it like any other aspect of training, you let the higher ranks use it as a media to teach, than it's realy good to have higher ranks spar lower ranks, it alows for one on one info in a very direct and active way. I think the times I have improved the most have been when sparring people alot better than me.
Also if all BBs ever spar are people less skilled than them then they won't improve and they may get sloppy, so they have to spar each other also
