    So there's this girl at my gym who screams, grunts and swears really loud every time she rolls with someone.

    I've only rolled with her a couple of times. First time I thought I injured her and asked her if she was okay, but she said she was fine. She still grunted and yelped a bunch of times.

    Tonight I rolled with her for the second time. After failing a sweep attempt she yelled "FUCK!" at the top of her lungs. After a while I proceeded to pass her guard and I'm pretty sure she called me "fucking fatso". I found it quite confusing since I don't think I've ever been called fat in my entire life. I'm currently 165 lbs, 5'11'' tall and athletically built.

    I ignored her for the roll, but it was pretty annoying. I think I went pretty easy on her. I don't think anyone has said anything to her about it since they don't want to be rude.

    Have you ever encountered this sort of strange behavior and what do you make of it?

    ...

    If you're correct, she called you a "fucking fatso"

    And you don't want to be rude to her?

    Call her out on her behavior, or talk to an instructor about it. Sparring is just that, sparring. There is no need to bring emotions or anger or frustration into it.

    You may want to confirm what she said before you mention it to an instructor. You may also want to indicate to her that when people scream it can be taken as a tap due to injury.

    No matter what you do, thanks for sharing. This made me crack up.

    Well I'm not 100% sure, but that's what I heard.

    I don't care enough to start a scene, I'll just rather ignore her.

    Rude and disrespectful behavior. If she did that to me while we were rolling, I'd tell her politely that she's being rude and to stop.

    Give her aggressively condescending looks to force her to reflect on her behavior.

    I haven't seen any screaming like that but I have seen some weird behaviour.

    Theres a big dude I roll with who, while more experienced than me, is not great and I've caught him a few times, all in heel hooks.

    Anyways the whole roll he just laughs at me!...the whole roll hes laughing at me saying stuff like no no no, stupid *shakes his finger*...hes foreign

    The laughing doesn't bother me now i've caught him a few times, but you can imagine before I caught him I thought I was doing everything wrong, attempting escapes he laughed like "silly white boy"

    Several options:

    1) ask if she has sought treatment for her Tourrete syndrome.

    2) whisper in her ear "it's pronounced KI-AI"

    3) let go of her each and every time she screams shrieks or swears loudly and say "are you ok? I thought that was a verbal tap".

    Isnt the answer obvious? drug her and a fat guy, take them to your home and strip both naked then upload her photos to the internet and shame her as a fatso lover.

    If something goes wrong, kill them and make a suit out of their skin as you dance to the song of "goodbye horses", while you tell yourself in the mirror you are not fat.

    Does she have turrets? Is she from another school? New student? She sounds like she has some bad baggage that might need professional help in addition to training.


    I can be immature and spiteful, so I can only imagine that I'd go a little harder next time to see what reaction I could get next. I'm usually helpful and courteous to new guys or visibly frustrated but humble guys. But one guy who was vocal about it as if I shouldn't have been able to tap him...well, I turned it up a little more to see how mad I could get him for my own entertainment. Only that one guy though.

    She seems pretty normal outside of rolling. She's not that new, she just doesn't train very consistently. I've heard her say that she also trains at another gym just a few miles away. The reason behind that is beyond me.

    I read baggage as cabbage. Got a good chuckle out of it.

    She need to be told to shut up when she rolls.
