Exellent!! Sometimes all that is needed is an "attitude adjustment" upside the head. It's amazing how a bonk on the brain bucket can make one see the error in their ways!!

Keep training, Mark

Hopefully it helped.
The thing is, he's aware of it, and earlier in the evening he remarked that I must hate him because of it.
That elbow strike was the first time that I've caught him, and I'm quite sure that he knew why I did it.
We'll see if it worked the next time I train with him.

We have a girl at our school who seems to want to beat people up when she spars. She's a big girl, in her late teens, and pretty strong too.
They had her spar with me a few times the other night, and I practiced defending against her advances. She was frustrated because she couldn't get a strike on me, and I was able to stop her kicks before they started.
She didn't want to spar with me anymore, so they put her with some others, and she was genuinely trying to hit the other students who sparred with her.
Our instructors have talked with her about her agressiveness before, but it didn't sink in. Other students, and parents of the younger students have complained to the school about her. She trained at another school for a year, which is about 8 miles from ours, and says that she came to ours because she moved. I question that because I feel that is a pretty short distance to justify changing schools because of location, and I'm wondering if she changed because she had the same problem at her former school, and if she was asked to leave that school because she hurt someone.
Personally, I would call her former school and ask the owner if they had problems with her, but it's not my decision to make.
I'm curious to see how our school will handle the situation.

Can you say bully?!! This sounds like there are some self esteem issues here. It really is a scary thing when one uses sparring as their outlet for pent up aggression. I would be willing to bet that this gal has a low self worth.


keep training, Mark

You're probably right, Mark. That's usually the case.
My concerns are that someone is going to get hurt, or she'll get hurt when she hits on someone more skilled than herself who is having a bad day, and decides to unload on her.
Thankfully, most of the students in our school who are good at sparring are also level-headed, but you can only count on that type of tolerance for so long, you know?

Hello Mark:

Hummmmmngh... what's the difference between this "attidude adjustment" you speak of and it becoming something much worse?

Jeff

I see your point Ronin. I guess it's a fine line between correction and overkill. That said I still feel that there are times when "getting what your giving" is the order of the day. It will usually make a bully see their mistakes. The toughest thing is not letting anger get involved.

keep training, mark
