Great story. Better example for instructors of what can happen at a seminars.
I once helped out at a friend's dojo. they brought in this highly thought of person who did the same thing to the dojo owner, and a few students. Two got the better of him, and he just totally disrespected them, the school, and started saying a lot of crap about them, later.

People who say "there is no tapping in real life" are usually just stupid and don't understand that tapping is a way to say "yes, you could've really hurt me".
I've even heard this argument from a former roommate. "What are you gonna do, put me in an armbar? I'll just tap, you let go, and I will continue whooping your ass."

Nice story, I love reading about stuff like this. Just makes you even more aware fo how much BS there is out there. Damn, and I still need to get my friend to teach me the tringle, to add to my rep of RNC, and armbar. I think I got th groundgame covered...
(I swear as soon as i get my free time back, i'll take Pankration)

Brilliant story John. That should go on the Bullshido front page.

I was shocked and pulled my head back and he kept following me, trying to gouge my eyes. I had bruised and scratched eye-lids afterwards.
Did he attempt to insert fingers into your sockets or claw your pupils? You seem like a hell of a gentleman not to have tortured him while triangle mounted.

What manner of asshole would say this? How old was this guy?

I'm not really bothered about his dislike for fat people, but this would have tipped me well over the edge.

You should have known he had issues when he wanted to put his "spear" in your face...
Anyway: sounds like you handled that as well as could possibly be expected and far better than could reasonably be expected.

Sounds like one of those instructors who refuse to acknowledge that they're not the best martial artists on this planet, so instead of trying to become better they revert to trashing other styles and teachers.

Nicely done. You should've just held on the triangle until he passed out and claim you couldn't feel him tap ;)
Dedicated to legs and the disrespecting thereof.

Can't you meet this dumb **** again and make him squeal like a pig?

Fat people disgust me in every way imaginable. I was at Freindly's with my girl tonight and saw a bunch of fat fuckers. I felt sorry for the pavement they were killing and the people who had to see them. .
