The Sparring Partner appears in the A Keeper's Training mission only. His purpose is to help the player practice sword fighting. He appears as a regular Bafford Guard, but in fact is a Keeper and doesn't take or inflict any damage (despite his wails of agony when receiving a swift blow). At the end of the sparring match, he walks back through the doorway he came from. The portcullis on the doorway will not close unless Garrett is out in the courtyard, so the room on the other side can be entered by following closely after him. This room is separated from the secret basketball court by a locked wooden door.
