The higher belts at my school roll with the beginners for the sole reason of bettering that beginner, not kicking his ass all over the mat lol. Have all black belts been so harsch at your other schools?
No, in fact I found it quite the opposite at my last school. There are always a few guys looking to assert themselves, but it was easy enough to steer clear of them.
There were a number of very good black belts and brown belts that were very good about rolling and teaching, as opposed to proving an unecessary point.
We'll see. All good things in time I suppose.
