Re: Anger on the mat

The training method at the dojo sounds inappropriate; being very confrontational, competitive and not condusive to 'response conditioning' . Find a dojo where people won't get injured, yet where the attackers are sincere in both the strength of attack, and their willingness to help you develop.

Getting injured and abused will not help you progress.
