Re: Not coping with the new sensei

I've had coaches push me harder. They have told me to shut up and train, to keep pushing, to stop slacking off, they have told me to try again and again and again even when I wanted to give up. That is all constructive. I've only had one instructor tell me I was stupid. I warned him and he didn't stop. That was the last time I ever trained with him.

Hey Don,

That's all I'm sayin......, it's a different kind of relationship, there are no warranties and no guarantees. But, you (most people) know when they're being abused. Abuse is different from simply not getting what you expected you were paying for......
