omg we had this one kid that would probably spend about an hour just spinning round in circles...he didn't last long, then we had this little kid that would kick everyone in the ass as they were stretching, i think she got kicked out lol then we have this guy who *charges* himself with the power from his gem stones before sparring!!!

I don’t know if this would count as the worst ever but…

The students that frustrate me the most are the ones that “know” every form ever created but can’t do any of them correctly.

I had a student in about as snotty of a tone as could be mustered tell me “Well I know 14 forms!!!” She was assisting me in remembering one that I had not done in some time and she had made a major mistake; I attempted to correct her, and that was her response – best part is she is a few ranks below me. W/O skipping a beat I said “I can eat a whole gallon of ice cream, the problem is I just end up with a mess on the floor”. Apparently my comment was so random that she did not get what I was saying.

Since forms are what I work the hardest on I hold back on learning new ones. I get the “how many can you do” question a lot since most lower belts do know a higher quantity than I do; I usually just say that I am still working on 1 but for some reason she struck a nerve.

I actually had a 3rd degree come down hard on me that I did not know a sufficient number of forms. He was the assistant instructor for that particular class and he did not know me at all; he really went over board, to the point of telling me in front of the class that I should not even be wearing my BB any more. I approached him after class and politely asked him to Demo first form w/opponents for me cuz I needed some help with it. He gave me a huff and grabbed a few students and set up the scenario - we use the pawlge forms. He went with the standard turn down block against a kick, step outside block against a punch. I politely commented that what I was needing help with was this – I set up a different scenario controlling 3 students per move only doing the first two moves (Down block, outside block). When I got to this point I said I was looking for help on the turn. He gave this odd look so I just said I would ask the GM. I thanked him for his time and walked away. The instructor for the class just giggled (he was my buddy and knew where I was going). The next week the same 3rd degree asked if I could help him out w/his lower forms. Personally I thought it was better than an apology.

Like I said, not the worst ever but funny non the less,

This reminds me of a kid we had. He always wanted to learn “X” like batman does.

- Teach me to kick down doors like batman does
- teach me to jump spin and kick like batman does

The list went on. The sad part was he was 15-16 years old. We had to assume that he had some issues…

My personal fav's are the guys that always want to "fight."

But oddly don't wish to spar with anyone older, larger, higher ranked, or just plain meaner.

Pretty much want to "fight" with people smaller, weaker, lower ranked etc.

Don't know if they are the "worst" but they sure are annoying

I used to take Shinkendo for a bit. The class drew many MA people from all over the area. Well I apparently “offended” one of the MA guys from another school. When we where changing out, he approached me and started telling me how he could withstand 3,000 PSI to his forehead. He seriously asked me to hit him. He gets all squared up and got real animated about it. They guy was kinda freaking out wanting me to hit him in the head.

About a year or so later, I was talking to a kid from Vietnam that was telling me about a guy from this other school (at the time he did not use names) that called him up in front of the class and asked him to hit him in the stomach. He told me that in VN if an instructor asks you to do something you do it, so he hit him. The guy dropped like a rock.

Turns out it was the same guy.
