At my dojo, if you need to stop, bow out, get some water, and take all the time you need. However, stupid as I am, I rarely take this opportunity unless a yudansha calls a water break. However, during something like ryo-kata randori, when I'm whipped, I'll stand in the back and catch my breath, but only as much breath as it takes to charge at them and roll again.

In conclusion- push yourself, but not too far...
