Re: Pompous Baffoons

I have read a few of the responses and I have to agree it is up to the chief instructor to make the decision to let the individual attend but disagree with the idea that you just ignore the individal. He is breaking basic etiquette, IMO, and he should be called on it every time. In many situations I have personally seen in the past ignoring the individual will likely lead to his departure but in the mean time he infects others with his posionous attitude. Regardless of how big a bafoon he or she may be there is always someone willing to listen. I don't understand how the aiki way is to go along to get along. If this is the case why bother training in the first place.
