I only bring this up because we mentioned it recently while chatting after class, but I have never had a problem with any of our guys getting too ‘touchy-feely’ for my taste, or just being downright pervs, to a point where it’s almost a foreign concept to me:
“A guy would cop a feel on a girl during training? But….why? Wha?”
All of our guys are super respectful, and I have never had a problem with anyone in our gym, even the ones I’m not a 100% fans of (let’s be honest, we can’t love everyone we meet in our lives). I mean, logically I can see the risk, but after that it becomes a foreign concept in my mind.
I was told this is not always the case in other gyms out there, and I truly feel sorry for women who had their jiu jitsu journey tainted by that experience. Has this happened to anyone else? How was it handled?
