I absolutely cannot believe that Jon Jones and now Brock Lesnar have both tested positive for banned substances. Like was Nate Diaz right. Is the whole UFC on steroids? Unbelievable...

he could be really mean to you if you're a guy but he's easy on the girls, he's kinda scary but there arent any tests or homework just pure fencing and he'll criticise you a lot.

I wasn't supposed to be in his class and he seemed to resent me for it. He straight up didn't like me, even though I was almost always prepared and participated. He seemed to only care about the students that fenced well. It wasn't my fault. Someone or something thought it was okay to put me in a class that I never even considered.

An extremely funny teacher, Mr. Yaged teaches the fencing gym class with a passion. He is old, and will therefore forget many things and retell many stories or jokes. He's an easy-going teacher, and hates to fail anyone. If you don't show any effort in his class, however, you will FAIL.

Mr. Yaged was strict but good hearted! I had him for Health sophomore year and fencing senior year! senior year fencing was TOUGH! i had it my first period (3rd) and due to a LOT of bad circumstances, i was absent a lot and practically failing.Mr Yaged wouldn't stand for missing class."If you miss class, you can't participate and this is a participation class!" long story short.I lived my last months of tech in fear of failing gym and not graduating.Luckily, Mr Yaged was kind enough to pass me!

He is funny, though I think he's better at teaching Gym than Health. He barely goes into the topic, he's always busy telling his stories. When he assigns homework, he never has it ready. He simply looks into the book for the questions. This wastes a lot of class time. However, his quizzes are fairly easy. He doesn't like long answers, though.
