Sadly they do exist, and usually it is do to lack of character on the part of the person in general and a failure of the instructor to notice teh character flaw in hte person being trained, though they are rare they do exist. Just like in the Karate kid there are those schools that teach violence as the answer as opposed to it being the last resort. this is what gives some martial artists bad names
