Re: Student Selectively Learning

On rereading the OP: another approach if your Sensei is willing is to step back and have him work on lesser expectation things like blending practices, not going to ground, etc. Not every instructor is willing to take that approach, but it is an option for safer and more productive practice. This guy may really need quite a bit of time to develop overall movement, proprioception, cross body skills before he can do the things the rest take for granted.
