    @Rzero: Not every art can be as safe and un-disgusting as the Krav :Hehehe:
    All wounds have to be covered before training. Any wounds received during training get treated with spray-on bandage. We take that **** serious. As should any other style/dojo/school that is concerned with the health of its students.

    Now we don't have to worry about disease as most of the students are Mormons, and virgins, too!

    The sparring every three months is odd, but their bbs can fight well. I've fought 'em and some have won local tournies and at least one bb cage fought (about 5 seconds into the first round he exploded in with driving strikes and KO'd opponent). Perhaps the intensity level pays off somehow. Sparring is a bid deal and intense. The n00bs are expected to get blown away and expected to follow the successes of the more advanced students as the years go by. It may not be the most effective fighting standup dojo, but like many here know, my kid got her bb there and as a teen fought off an asshole attacker, so it works OK. Hard sparring drills are important and a good teaching tool. I know a lot of people think one step and point sucks totally, but I have trained in instructor's class with a dozen bbs, half of whom could wipe me out, and their one steps were sometimes unstoppable. As John Irving, noted author and wrestler (and author of the best ma book, The Imaginary Girlfriend) put it, I wouldn't dream of trying a new move in a match until I'd practiced it a thousand times.



    They don't take it too easy on n00bs and more advanced colored belts, while not creamed, are not coddled. And perhaps it's also the kind of students attracted. It's part of Utah State U and tough ex-high school jocks and such, as college students join. His students included the football star, a reciever who became a vice squad cop in SLC, some rugby guys and such. Some who attend BJJ seminars and sometimes come downtown to spar at the Kaju/ke?po or sport karate clubs, etc. Also he's married to the best woman karateka around and she tends to attract a solid group of young women.

    To this entire post all I can muster is, WTF? I've read it, and now I can't unread it. Maybe I should go put on those old maxi pads they use for gloves and have sensei mormon jock stud thump me in the head a couple times.

    At our gym, they extract the resins from poison sumac, primarily urushiol, and paint the gloves with it. That way you know when you get tagged and so does everyone else.

    Its interesting that the western name derives from the Japanese word 'urushi' describing this very custom.
