I wish I had a swimming pool filled with pudding. Then I could get a bunch of hot chicks to swim and wrestle in it.

Also, like it or not, everything needs to be practiced. Attending a general class is assertivness is as effective as attending a single class of MMA. Verbal techniques need to be drilled just like physical techniques do.

But at the same time, I also implemented a lot of the ideas from my RBSD training in modifying my behavior to ensure my own safety.
Now as for the tennis thing, I don't get your point. It assumes that there is nothing to gain from these lessons. Granted, all the RBSD students at our school were training for specific reasons. While the classes were fun, that was never the primary goal.
