    Suggestions of the day:

    1) People should maybe pay a little more attention to the forum they're in.

    2) This should get stickied before it gets lost in the sauce; possibly give it a new title that lets noobs know this is important gym etiquette.

    I've actually posted a few of these. The most recent was the douchebag who challenged me to a fight.

    At my new MMA class there is a guy who feigns injury rather than tap

    At first I was all 'are you OK man?'

    Now I'm all ' If you're injured you'd better not play'
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    Me: keep your hands up
    Him: But "a name of a famous fighter" keeps them down.
    Me: (dreams to sucker punch him as hard as i can, and say "you ain't him you cock).
    instead i say: well when he started, he too kept his hands up.

I walked back there and told him not to kick the bag.

    Him-I'm sure the bag can handle my kicks.
    Me-Yeah, I'm sure of that too, but you don't know how to kick.
    Him-What?
    Me-One of the things we pride ourselves on is kicking and who ever taught you how to kick didn't know what they were doing.
    Him-What's wrong with my kicks?
    Me-You want my opinion or my instruction?
    Him-Well I already know how to kick.
    Me-No you don't, you suck.
    Him-Who the **** are you?
    Me-I'm the head coach.

    You need to work on your social/business skills, you provide a service, can you afford loosing clients like that? If so, have fun and keep it real i guess, if not, than being a little bit polite, at least with a new guy/stranger will only do good to your school.

    Did you know, that assumption is the mother of all **** ups...?

    The big O, had already given the guy some slack, that's why it wasn't a problem when he loosened him.
    "So, yeah, Zen teachers may well insult you, work you to the bone, hit you with sticks, shout verbal abuse at you, and punch the **** out of you.
    And when the ****'s been punched out of you, you might just find that you're far better-off without it." - Vieux Normand

    "So in short, BJJ wins again. BJJ, and chainmail." - TheMightyMcClaw

    "On bullshido, your opinions are not sacred, neither are your feelings." - Scrapper

    "You entered the lions' den. Don't bitch if you get eaten." - danniboi07

    "Needless to say, it's much easier to clear a bunch of drunk kids out of your house when you're yelling GTFO and carrying a samurai sword." - DerAuslander

    "Eventually, I realized it doesn't matter what art you train, what matters is the method in which you train. Training in an alive manner, under skilled and qualified instruction, is the single most important aspect of gaining martial skill. All else is window dressing." - JNP; saying it, how it is!

    Trust me. I'm actually extremely friendly. When somebody produces the douche card though I cut them loose quick. My motto is better to lose one bad apple than spoil the bunch. I do this every 2 years or so. I cultivate a team/family atmosphere at my locations. Douchebags rarely survive.

    Same here. One douchebag can also cause you to loose several good students who don't want to deal with that crap. You reep what you sow.
