We have a rule. Everyone gets a turn.
I don't believe in hard testing.
But being the instructional meat puppet ***** some time too. Some aholes tee off on you and expect you to just take it.
Well here's the deal you get a turn too. When you are hit thrown, locked etc. you get an opportunity to show you also know how to do the same to the guy who just did it to you. Tends to keep folks honest.
If someone bangs you around and refuses to give you a turn, then I'm pretty comfortable recomending sinking your thumb in their eye socket.
Someone wants to do hard sanchin testing on me ...fine! But I get to test them too! Bet you half this crap would vanish if the muckie mucks got what they dished out.
If they are not willing too then you train with a coward and an A hole, time to move on.
