Thread: Belt whipping for promotion?

  1. #1

    Default Belt whipping for promotion?

    Does you gym do it? Do you agree with it. Any funny stories?

    My gym does it, I got whipped by about 70 people when I got my blue and it was a most unpleasant experience although a very memorable one. I don't see any harm in it personally.

    Just some of them


    It's just a bit of fun... sparring is tougher than getting whipped.

    There is no need for a lot of things in modern society, its called tradition.

    Fortunately I haven't been on the receiving end of a belt whipping yet. It isn't something I like, but it wouldn't stop me training somewhere (after all, it isn't like you get promoted often). However, if I was looking for a place to train and there were two clubs with roughly equal ranks training and instructing but one didn't do belt whipping, it would be enough to sway my decision.

    On the off-chance anybody wants to read the long answer, I put up an article about belt whipping here. Also, interesting threads on the topic over at EFN and NHBGear, along with an earlier one from Cagewarriors, here.

    We do whip, and I feel the complete opposite to slideyfoot, If there where two clubs at the same standard, but one whipped you when you got promoted and one didnt, Id go for the whipping club. Infact big Chris got his blue last night and recieved a good whipping, congrats Chris.
