Re: Need Advice - Disruptive Student
Welcome to being a sensei! I don't know how many times I've had my authority on the mat, if not outright challenged, at least tested. I've had bouncers, karate instructors, jujitsu guys, and just plain meatheads try to show me up in my own dojo. As far as I'm concerned, it goes with the territory. If this guy won't respect you on the mats, tell him to take a hike. If he tries to mess with you physically, plant him so hard he takes root. Whatever you do, don't let it continue.
