    Ever See Your Instructor Spar.....

    Just wondering if anyone else has never seen their instructor spar any one. Seems like most of them don't want to ever put it on the line....and show what they could do.

    My Muay Thai instructor is a pro-fighter. And my Tae Kwon Do instructor is an ex-ITF world champ :)

    Every instructor I've had I have seen spar, except for my Baji instructor. But I think I can let him slide on the sparring since he's 70.

    My instructor is none of those things, but he was once featured in Black Belt Magazine.

    I had a BJJ instructor that was a 250+lb former competitive powerlifter.

    I was very thankful that he didn't roll with us.

    If your instructor doesn't spar, and doesn't have age or injuries to excuse it, there is likely a problem. If you're at an MMA gym and have an instructor that doesn't spar, there is likely a real problem. Where do you train?
