PostSubject: unnecessary demonstrations   Thu Aug 05, 2010 3:24 am

Some self defense teachers say that getting hurt is part of the psychological training of eventually being able the defend one's self. Is this true??? I have had three different teachers and all of them seemed to go too far in demonstrating wrist locks and other submission type holds. After more than one time getting the tendons stretched in my wrist i protested in a respectful manner only to get the answer than its part of it! suck it up. This has been the case with three different trainers. I realize that getting into it with a bully is serious and being aware and ready to act is paramount but it would be nice to have a trainer thats not trying to prove he can hurt you over and over again.

I would like to hear peoples thoughts on this topic. Thanks

Hopefully Richie's thoughts.... I am so glad i found your site. You are a true professional!!

Thanks mate

sorry for delay in response

simply put: don't put up with it - injuring students is not part of the process of the student learning, unless you are learning how to be injured...?

To me, the way I see it you offer someone your body to demonstrate a technique on, in good faith and with polite compliance they go too far and strain a tendon in your wrist or whatever then they are what I would call an "asshole" and I don't train with "assholes".

If you are going to an MMA/ boxing/ kickboxing class and sparring then you can expect to get hurt, but not injured.

Though the longer you go and the harder you go a little injury here or there would eventually become inevitable - but this is a world away from overzealous "demonstrations" - what exactly do these demonstrations prove?

Thats its easy to hurt someone if they let you?

Well... durr.
