Alot of gyms see MMA as more of a way to kick anyone's ass and not as an art.
Its Mixed Martial Arts not Mixed Martial Rage or something like that.
Actually, that mentality is as old as dirt and pre-dates the Gracies by centuries. If that wasn't the case, Musashi wouldn't have been famous for the number of duels he won (most by killing his opponent).
People seem to forget that we don't live in such medieval times. Couple that with the natural growth of a person's ego and you've got a huge field for potential issues.
