    Yeah the gym got a lot of shit for it though and ended up extending him a lifetime membership(they claimed to have banned him because they are a "starter" gym") which he turned down because SSP Barbell Club gave him a year membership. Good for the guy.
    And here I thought everyone in Canada was nice and said "Eh" lol
    I was waiting for "leave the gym now eh!" lol

    Makes sense why the ban.
    I don't know much about the gyms, but I'm guessing SSP is a good gym?
    lol, the stereotype's a bit exaggerated

    Canadians for the most part aren't as "direct" or aggressive as our southern brothers, but its not to the point of being a doormat.

    This is another reason having a home gym is terrific. The only person that can kick me in the nuts for deadlifting is myself or my wife.

    Thats what I heard - that the kid said on his social media account that he himself was banned and then deleted his post afterwards.

    I loved Montreal, good food, trained judo and sambo in two great places and there are so many good gyms of different combat disciplines that the moron that kick the kid was lucky to not encounter a serious practicioner doing that deadlift.

    Sadly most gyms around the world are fitness based and is hard to lift for strength or sport specifics-

    Dude it's Montreal...French isn't even that popular there. It's so multicultural that you'd expect english or some other Asian language before French.lol

    I have short arms. I hit myself in the nuts on pretty much every deadlift.

    Mate you must be higher then I, as this is going completely over your head. He said he would KICK himself in the nuts while deadlifting. What does short arms have to do with kicking yourself in the nuts? Both you and Liquid Smoke need to share what you are smoking with me. :)

    that would make zero difference to the two I had in mind, both who were pretty decent fighters, and could be/were very violent towards people who'd did them wrong in the past.

    Can confirm kicking yourself in the nuts while deadlifting is possible. You have to do a butt kick but angle it toward the bags.

    I guess I’m more shocked that a guy would kick a weight out of the dudes hands in an MMA gym. I was a pretty damn good Muay Thai fighter and boxer but I’d never do some shit like that in a place where you can pretty much gaurantee everybody knows how to fight.

    people wouldn't/shouldn't do it because its a douchebag thing to do, also some people don't give a fuck who is on the other side of them in a fight, human honey badgers.

    I have even shorter arms than that dude. I have to be careful I don't drag the bar across my nuts when I deadlift.

    I don't kick myself in the nuts with my arms. Short arms puts the barbell at just about nut height, so it's the bar that kicks me in the nuts. Got it?

    And a very special thanks to @bad seed for confirming this geometry with pictures.
