Bailed on Sparring

Saturday evening I was supposed to spar for a TV show, but once they began filming with two other people, I realized I didn't want to be in their position. I was sitting there, geared up, but no longer willing to put on a show. So, I told them I wasn't doing it, and left.

I don't feel bad about my decision. I had expressed some reservations about it previously, and nothing felt right about the situation once I got there. I wasn't in good condition to fight, had injured my back that day. The introductions they asked the fighters to make, throw a flurry of punches or kicks and introduce yourself, rubbed me the wrong way. The atmosphere of camaraderie was not present and the space was cramped, we had to wait on the street for an hour while things were set up. In the end, I just didn't have any desire to be recorded for a TV show. And once it was recorded, I had no rights to how that footage got used, as far as I can tell.
