Re: Problem student!!
The other reason I'd recommend going easy on him on pins or throws and not responding in kind to any physically aggressive practice is because you don't want him to get the idea that it's OK for a sempai to practice like that with a kohai in this dojo (e.g. if his partner is tapping early he should slow down). I've seen that happen -- intermediate student is being kind of a dick, senior student decides to 'teach him a lesson', intermediate student takes out his stress and hurt ego on the next junior student he gets alone with.
