Which I took to mean General Martial Arts Discussions, and also Comedy.

Hmmm my link says:
Your Martial Art Sucks: General Martial Arts and Comedy Forum
Your Martial Art Sucks pretty much explains this area.
In other words, Your Martial Art Sucks: General Martial Arts and Your Martial Art Sucks: Comedy Forum.
Either way it will get ugly.

If it's in YMAS, you can be a tool, w/o IIF banhammer. You may still be called an idiot though...such is life...it is mine.

But - my instructor basically told me, you're always going to feel not ready before the first time you roll so you might as well jump in there. And I do think you learn a lot by getting into rolling early because you learn by getting the moves applied to you full force in real time and you learn how to contort yourself away from getting locks applied and what not. So for example I'm definitely still a training dummy for the dudes in my class because they're all a lot more experienced but I'm able to give them a workout for a few minutes before they win. So anyway, that is the small point of disagreement - while I do agree that a class format like that can cause people to quit, I do actually agree with my instructor that you learn a lot by jumping right into rolling early as long as you have the right mentality in terms of not quitting when you get frustrated. For people that don't know how to deal with frustration and losing though, yes it's going to be a problem and cause a high wash-out rate.

Rolling on day 1 doesn't mean getting shark tanked. All of our beginners roll on their first or second day, but they roll with blue or purple belts that talk them through the positions and movements and let them get a feel for things. No one just jumps on a 1st day beginner and runs a clinic on them, unless that beginner goes all douchebag-powerbomb-out-of-triangles crazy on someone.

I pause with them to explain or show holes, I let them work and don't defend hard, feed them sweeps, and positions and if I feel comfortable that they are calm, I'll feed subs to them as well. If they are rough and refuse to calm down, I'll put in my mouthpiece and play hard with them.
