Wow, that is all sorts of messed up. I mean every school has a "listen to your instructor" rule, but that is usually for safety reasons. Adding the "You must do everything I say so I know I can trust you" and "If I can't trust you, I am sending you home" clause just makes it cult like environment with "Instructor" being the leader.
I really hope this doesn't get buried, this sort of thing should not be tolerated.

Don't let it get buried. Share the post on Facebook on your own profile/wall. Let friends and family know about it.
Heck, let's start a movement to lobby for getting Irvin's rank rescinded and having his team banned from competition.
Hell, this should be the first thing we do here, after all; protecting consumers from assholes is our primary mission.

Easy with the torches and pitchforks, there...
Since when has anecdotal evidence and third-hand accounts been good enough for Bullshido?
While damning, and consistent, this stuff is neither gospel nor proven fact yet. Remember when we used to investigate stuff? Let's do what we do.
Who wants to help me?And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

Does Irvin have affiliated schools in Europe?

As someone who actually knew her (i've since cut off ties), what he's implying about LI and Nyjah is probably not true. And even if it were, she deserves plenty of heat for still remaining on TLI, that's it. Her personal affairs aren't a subject of investigation here, and are only relevant if they may have contributed to the cultish atmosphere of TLI.

Still a lot of hearsay, but a "source" is now claiming that Lloyd Irvin himself paid the lawyer's retainer initially when Maldonado and Schultz were arrested.
