I trained for a little while at a local place and it left such a bad taste in my mouth, I stopped. Basically you had this "Know it all" instructor who all he wanted to do was show what a bad ass he was. So he'd take the students *Beginners* and get off on how fast he could tap them. I got discouraged cause I didnt agree with that method. I am here to learn, not to be your practice dummy. Anyhow, I got pretty good fast. I could sub everyone but the instructor, its just I really got tired of his method of always tryin to show what a bad ass he was on the beginners. Was I just being a bitch? or was the guy out of line? my question is, is this standard at all schools? kind of like an initiation thing? what should I look for when looking to join somewhere?
