I’m pissed off. I have decided to leave the gym I have been at for 9 years. It has come out that a 25 year old student was having a sexual relationship with a 16 year old student. This was a consensual thing and not illegal in my state because the age of consent is 16. The older student told the younger that they had to keep it a secret. The gym owner/black belt instructor has no problem with this and the older student is still training and teaching classes. I told him I disagreed with his decision and that I can’t train with them anymore. He told me that I am judge mental and my moral standards are too high. He also said what two students do off the mats is not his problem. I am blown away with this situation and really pissed off. I loved this school and loved training with all my friends and now I’m out. I’m really just venting but also was wondering am I way off thinking this is wrong? There is a better than average chance that most of the parties involved will read this so I would love for this community to weigh in on and be honest. What would you other gym owners do?
Should I let my teammates know why I’m not training anymore?
9 fucking years and now I’m here. I’m pissed off.
