Re: Pompous Baffoons

All things considered here...I would think that this individual is known to your instructor and it is likely that your instructor is the source of the initiation. Your instructor's responsibility is to be aware of all things that are going on with respect to the training that is occurring while he is teaching.....so it is likely that your instructors knows what is going on and gives tacit approval to the behavior.

Over the years the seniors I have trained with that were a source of concern I just avoided. Some folks just don't get it no matter how much you sit and chat with them....some just won't see you as someone worth talking to or listening to. Those individuals who were at my general level I "talked" to them on the mat and they did their "listen" on the mat.

Just another approach.....you need a full tool kit.....
