    Bitchy, bitter old bag chiming in

    Currently hold a McBlack belt in a kyokushin-offshoot. Sparring standards vary between dojos in said offshoot; the dojo where I did my shodan grading was one of the softer ones, hence the 'Mc'. Wasn't a soft dojo when I started training (late '80's), but over the years the dojo began pandering to whitebread upper-middle class wankers and their mewling brats (i.e., $$$$$$$). Couldn't be bothered with that, so I quit training, didn't train for many years.

    Fortunately I have moved to a new city and the dojo there is just like how my previous one was in the good old days. So have started training again. They kick my fat arse all over the dojo, do not make allowances for how out of shape I am. They don't give a ****. I waddle out of every sparring class in a dazed and confused state, bruises on bruises on bruises.

    I love it.

    Great site, btw.

    Thanks for the welcome(s). Reading the threads here made me realise that my reasons for leaving the old dojo were valid ... kinda felt for a long while that I was being too harsh maybe. Cuz being a woman I ought to just love being in the presence of snot-nosed spoilt kids (and their snot-nosed, snotty parents). But the kids weren't the worst of it - the toffs who gradually infected the dojo were. Grading standards dropped; it's just a black belt factory now for the wine n' cheese brigade, cuz a black belt worn with a white gi is so chic, darling. Matches the decor in the kitchen. And being called Senpai makes one a REAL black belt, even if one can't punch one's way out of a wet paper bag. After all, one wouldn't want to break one's nails would one. Or sweat so much that it musses up one's L'Oréal for Men hair 'product'.

    The place has no heart anymore. Bunch of tossers.

    Yep, any intro post that includes the word "mewling" shows promise. As does your handle.

    Namaste!

    Hell yeah! Kyokushin isn't Kyokushin if it isn't comprised entirely of asswhupping, bruises, and a "stop whining and keep fighting" attitude.
