A question for Instructors/ Coaches or students.

How do you or your instructor deal with people coming in wanting to "roll" with the instructor? BJJ in particular occasionally attracts new people who wish to "test" themselves.

How would you or your instructor handle the situation of a high school wrestler coming in wanting just to "spar" with the teacher?

We have an opoen mat policy. This means that win or lose & barring injury, the instructor (me) will roll with anyone coming through the door. Win or lose. I will not hide behind my students or my rank/position. If I canoot represent my rank by performance or skill and knowledge, I will take it off.
