By the time you get to Blue belt you've been around these people long enough that you should be able to trust them to not just smash you out of it, that said I've seen one where a little dirtbag when for the face on everyone who went through.

All looks pretty tame. At my judo club when you get your new belt you have to randori against the rest of the members of the club they call it a line up. Id much rather be tickled with a belt rather than beaten with the planet.

This chick "Stacey" thinks she's awesome because she passed the Illiniois and Iowa bar exams.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2011, 6:00 p.m. — The State Bar of California's Committee of Bar Examiners reported today that 42.3 percent of the applicants passed the February 2011 General Bar Examination (GBX). If the 1,848 people who passed the February 2011 exam satisfy other requirements for admission, they will become members of the State Bar.
Preliminary statistical analyses show that of the 4,364 applicants who took the GBX, 32.4 percent were first-time takers. The passing rate for 1,415 first-time applicants was 55.0 percent overall. The passing rate for the 2,949 applicants repeating the examination was 36.0 percent overall. https://www.calbar.c...ews/201111.aspx
LOL! I've done 2 bars, one in IL, and one in IA. Never had much of a problem with them, didn't find them all that difficult. Passing known requirements related to the position (frat brother, member of Airborne, bar member, college graduate, swimmer, bjj blue belt, whatever) is not hazing. Though, the swearing in ceremony in Chicago was rather painfully long, at least I got to listen to lectures, er speeches about law. The parking ticket, that just sucked.
The 2009 Illinois bar exam had a staggering pass rate of...get this...only 84%!!!
This chick is genius! Anyone care to take a guess what state I practice in?"We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.
1) That it doesn't work
2) That it does work"
