Exclamation Alcohol smell from weapons instructor

This may be an offensive question to some. It has been over a year since I did any kind of aikido weapons practice and I have been kind of going back a bit lately. I had this one guy teach me for years. Because of covid restrictions, we have been doing jo stuff outside. Last class, the same instructor reeked of alcohol. I can smell it when he spoke outdoors. I do not like to deal with alcoholics. Would anyone here feel ok with taking classes from a weapons instructor that smells of alcohol?

Every time you practice martial arts (with or without weapons) you put yourself in harms way and depend on your partner to keep you safe.

A partner who is under the influence of alcohol or any other substance is dangerous.

Smells of alcohol, or used alcohol before practice?

Just because of the time, be sure it's not that is he uses some alco-jel that has a strong smel, or some other reason for smelling of alcohol without being under the influence of alcohol.
