Re: How do you deal with.....

A couple of thoughts:

Is there any possibility he is cursing at himself for not doing something as well as he wanted?

Are you getting negative feedback from other seniors? Or is it just this fellow who has an attitude problem? Any advice I might offer would be really dependent on your reply because you indicate there are other things affecting your self-confidence....and many of the responses I can think of are based on this student being an outlier in an otherwise ok dojo, which calls for you to keep your inner balance and respond with humor...whereas if the dojo as a whole is posing a problem that's really different...so I won't say more until/unless you can offer more context ...
