I think alot of this comes from the movies and modern mma tv. These big tough guys have major egos and don't seem to respect their own abilities, it seems as though a lot of people are imitating that so you end up with the new breed of ma student.

I've never had a 5th Dan beating, but one of my old instructors was a 3rd Dan who loved grappling and joint locks and loved even more to practice them on me prior to class when I was a mere brown belt.

I really don't think things have changed that much over the course of human history. There have always been big guys with egos, and little guys with egos, and fighting has been around forever. I think that TV and MMA exposure just makes it appear like there is more of it now.

To be honest, these "beatings" I'm currently receiving have been exaggerated He'll demonstrate techniques on me sometimes, but he's got really good control. I definitely feel the hit, and it hurts, but I know he's pulling his strikes.

The worst I've gotten was from a 4th Dan who accidentally dislocated my jaw. That was... pleasant T_T

You and I have very different views of "pleasant," my friend....

The most painfull of the techniques demonstrated on me are the nerve pressure points around the face and jaw. They are not pretty. I just need to know how they feel so I can apply them myself.

I was working on some techniques with one of my masters on saturday. He completely disabled my radial nerve for a short period of time, leaving my right fist useless. Still hurts right at this very second. No bruise or anything. It appears nothing is wrong. Luckily I can use it now. It is what you would expect from an 8th Dan.

Where do i sign up for a decent beating??!
So far the only time we have semi-contact is if my 2 step sparring partner momentarily loses control of his counterattack. I then smile on him and tell him 'play ball dude' but he is so afraid to keep it going...!
Jesus i need a heavy bag or smth...

OSU, you could probably sign up for a beating at a Kyokushin, Enshin, Ashihara, or related dojo, if your Sensei is okay with it. ;}

No one mentioned an MMA gym for a beating. Guess that brutality doesn't come to mind as often as we thought....

I was usually my masters uke and I know those beatings well. I especially love the judo classes where I would get thrown so hard I thought I was Gunna explode.
