I have a heavily pregnant woman participating in class. It's killed all the credibility. Is it time to quit?

This is a joke post right? A pregnant women must stay at home because people lose credibility at a school?

Hopefully you won't take this a certain way but how old are you?

Actually I worded the op wrong. What I mean is martial arts are supposed to be intense and challenging. If a heavily pregnant woman is doing it then does it take anything away from the class in terms of credibility?

More info: share your age, martial arts experience, fitness level, what style your studying, and a description of class activities (especially sparring) then people will be able to answer your question.

Generally a good coach will push everyone with the understanding that the less athletic will do what they can. I'll bet that heavy pregnant woman is finding it plenty intense and challenging even if she can't keep up with young athletic folks.

What kind of class are you talking about? You don't have a style field. If its penis-having 101 or a pro fighting gym you might have a point. Otherwise its meh.

EDIT: I noticed this is the KMA forum, so I'm assuming its a TKD class? If it is then the kinds of people who worry about pregnant women ruining credibility probably already think its less credible by being a TKD dojang.

So let me get this straight. You ask us questions and expect us to answer but you won't answer our questions. I'm not moving or approving your posts until you do.

Ah sorry.

I've been training in San shou for three months now. Classes are about an hour and a half with maybe 30 mins sparring. Sparring is optional and if you don't spar you can do some pad work. Sorry as you can see I'm a total newbie when it comes posting. The reason I ask is as I've not been there that long I'm just wondering if I'm wasting time or am I better switching clubs before I get in too deep

You focus on yourself, not other people. It's bullshit to let your ego depend on others. It's also bullshit to have the "martial arts are only for young, fit, non-disabled people" attitude. If you want to go train and Douchebro Inc School of Cobra Kai, I'm sure there's some school out there that pushes out everyone who doesn't fit that description.
Meanwhile, a good instructor will allow people who have special physical needs to adjust what they are doing, and they will balance their classes so everyone can get something good and useful out of it.
Is it time to go, though? Well, with the attitude you are displaying, and complete lack of respect for anyone who isn't young, perfectly fit, and not disabled, then yeah, maybe you should. People who have no respect for their training partners tend to be a detriment to their schools and their classmate's training.
