    It appeared to me that Ghyslain was describing a situation wherein an adult demonstrated inappropriate social boundaries with a young adult.

    I am not a psychologist, nor do I play one on TV, however, dear reader, you may wish to conduct more research into this.

    He actually left months ago, I just had been on haiatus at my gym for a while and hadn't seen him. Probably, whatever the mood is, it's centered mostly around what happened at the muay thai event, which he knew nothing about. sBP isn't teaching for six weeks as a result, so I imagine that has affected the mood some. I have better sources anyway.

    Nope can't say I have been although I did used to train under one of his sons for a period of time. I left shortly after the look of horror I got from a TKD instructor when I said I was taking FSD. Apparently Sijo assaulted one of his 12 year old students in the 90s on the street for no good reason other than the fact that the kid was wearing a TKD uniform. I don't know exactly how many of these FSD horror stories are true but that one freaked me out enough to leave. The kid actually, according to the instructor, broke a bone I forget which one. I was at a plateau in my training anyways and was thinking of quitting already at that point. In all fairness to my former instructor however, aside from the price and a boredom resulting from all classes seeming to be the same I can't say I was intimidated, beat up, or anything else wrong with the school in my own personal scope of experience. I didn't stay that long but I have to say all in all it was a positive experience and I do not regret it.

    On the subject at hand I was merely commenting on how strange it was that he beat up the drunk guy but didn't touch this guy. That being said I'm not a retard and obviously I see the point of the story. If that ever happened to me (If I was in Jacques's shoes) and I told that story I would be laughing my ass off. If he wasn't laughing when he told the story then something's fucked up.

    That is a long time to be out with a broken nose.

    Seriously though, the FSD crowd, sBP (cornered by sSP) did step up and compete. This takes away a major technical criticism of them. Some are demonstrating the desire to change and step up, that is a good thing. I hope that in the long term this is a significantly positive development in the lives of those who competed.

    Not that long to be out with a broken paradigm though. ;)

    I have high hopes for these guys after this event.

    Yeah word on the street is that it was more than that, but I don't know for sure.

    Wow, I did not know that. Well, best wishes for a speedy recovery to him, then! Hope to see Brian out and competing again when he's fixed up.

    good luck to him.

    i've known that he had stuff going on (i won't say since his health issues might be personal stuff) and he had to stop sparring for some time.

    hope he recovers fast...
