I don’t even know what to say about the situation in this video. Our friend, T, sent in a message about a training session recently in his class. He said that while he was rolling with a young teenager. The teenager’s father screamed out “fuck him up” during the roll.
When I read this message my instant reaction was. . . no way . . . this didn’t happen. But I’ve received several messages similar to this through the videos.
I’ve also experienced a few situations where things like this have happened.
1 such situation was when I was at a BJJ tournament and a father told his son, “Don’t you fucking tap.”
It’s just disgusting. It really is. . . this is a disgusting situation that has no place in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
The weirdest thing about the situation that came from our friend’s question was that the father is a purple belt n BJJ. I find this so bizarre because most people who actually do Brazilian Jiujitsu know the struggle and understand how hard it is and in turn they are usually very supportive and encouraging rather than negative.
I also share what I think the White Belt who asked this question should do. I don’t know how helpful it will be to anyone. But maybe it’s informative in some way.
