Smile Help !

Greetings everyone,

Our Saturday class is straight after the Kids class and for 2 weeks now I have had a junior (around 11yrs old) 1st kyu come up to me and tell me that he is a higher belt than I am and that he knows more techniques than I do. I am 27 yrs old and only 7th kyu so it would be understandable that he would be more experienced than me in regards to time spent on the mat. The way I dealt with it was to say that " yes you are a higher belt than me " and just got back on the mat. The second time when he said that he knows more techniques than I do I said " I would be careful who you say that to " then hoped back on the mat. I say hello to this young person and his father has just started training in the adult classes.

Has anyone here been in a similar situation and if so how did you deal with. I fear that what he is saying to me in class he may be saying to his mates at school and this would get him in big trouble.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
