    What does courtesy have to do with it? Why face a wall when tying a belt? I feel it's demeaning to make people do something as pointless as that.

    i make every student bow to the welsh flag, bow to the tillery combat badge, give 3 cheers for Dave Coles, and chant Shaky is our leader before every class.
    I will post a video soon to prove that this is all true.
    I also insist that they buy the cheapest gi available, preferably Ninja black.
    any one who fails to adhere to these rules is made to train stand up with anthony johnson for the whole lesson
    hope this helps

    The same rules apply for their nogi lessons (other than the gi specific ones, obviously).

    If you have a problem not training stand up in Bjj get a mate from your gym to train it with you at an open matt gym simple, that's what people do

    To be honest i don't think most schools get that pissy if you don't follow the rules to a tee, but thats the uk schools i think, british people aren't ones to make that much of big deal out of things.

    Its not that simple to find someone who correlates with your training times and has an open mat.I have tried doing that already,its failed.In reality we are all busy people.That's what I did.

    Yip that's us alright,pretty much identical..The thing is it just bugs me man.They want to be recognised in society as a 'Professor' or lawyer etc but at the end of the day,we the people who respect there art the most are forced to bow down to a poster we dont even know.
    Anyway If I see a lawyer in society I'm more likely to be thinking' hmm I wonder how much he made for this divorce settlement as apposed to wow there go's a stand up guy'.

    Why should I have to bow down to the guys poster after work hours.He doesn't even have an influence on my training or my lively hood and still I wouldn't bow down to anybody who was not present unless he was a legend that I thought deserved it which would be a personal thing to each there own. .
    My dojo is selling the gi's at 99.6 pounds.They are not very good gi's though and should not represent GB in anyway accept as a first for guys trying out jujitsu for 6 months.
