Guy #1: *Push*
Guy #2: You think I'm gay or something? Wanna Grapple?
Guy#1: I was just kidding.
Guy#2: C'mon, get in my guard.
(Now, I'm not dissing BJJ, because I love rolling, but, I've actually had this convo before. So, yeah.)

Trust is broken.
I hate most people irrespective of style.

I agree wholeheartedly, but you can find that with alomst all martial arts systems. as a matter of fact, you are probably going to find that in more creeps and martial arts than in most places, as it is completely unregulated

I'm afraid regulation wouldn't help. People are in martial arts for many reasons. One of them is the feeling of power that comes from being able to fight (or thinking you can) or worse, standing in front of the class and lording it over people who call you "Master".
Life is too short for that crap.
well.... (looks at name) yes. Yes I do.
The Bissett Combat Jiu Jitsu club in Winnipeg (www.combatjiujitsu.com) really is a good club. Really. It's just getting harder to defend lately, because there are so many people who play up the self defense applications to god-like proportions.
I met a guy today who tried out a free class, and apparently one of the instructors told him "anyone can roll with someone and put them in an armbar. We make sure the guy is incapable of fighting back before he hits the ground." Apparently he also played up the "Our techniques are too deadly for the octagon." angle, and turned this guy off of our club for good.
When I kind of fell out of regular training there, a lot of the newer people were buying the "we're too dangerous" crap, and a couple of the instructors were just hamming it up.
