    PS, Thanks for the macro, Snake. I'm going to hold him down and tattoo it on him.
    No big deal, he should have explained that you did things right, and done it again with you doing it wrong, after explaining it to the rest of the class.

    The other students didn't want to learn anything anyway.

    I feel a demo should fail once in a while or it's overly compliant. Even high percentage does not mean 100 percent.
    I disagree.

    In grappling there are TONS of counters, reversals, and exceptions to every rule. There is no 100% success technique or one that works for every circumstance. When demoing a technique you are showing what steps need to be taken and how it's supposed to work, during free grappling you get a chance to practice the move with resistance and see the difference.

    It sounded like he wanted you to actually give him some resistance, but I personally feel the purpose of a demonstration is to show a technique not to go "haha, I got my instructor."

    These kind of things happen. Although in my experience it tends to be more in groundwork, because people find it harder to pitch the right level of resistance than they do when they're working standup.

    If you've taught MA as an instructor you will have had this happen to you. Those who are actually comfortable in their skills and ability will just laugh it off and do it again. Its only those who aren't comfortable with their skills or are up themselves who will get upset by this.

    Your instructor has probably already forgotten about it.

    Exactly right, that's why I think the instructor should have told him to give some resistance but let it work.

    All joking aside, I'm kinda thinking that there might be a little bit of him that's proud that you did it to him - because he taught you how to do that.

    You're alright as long as it was just a case of the training kicking in and you reacting naturally, it would have been different if you consciously set out to show him up.

    ^ This, if I catch my instructor out, he doesnt complain about it, he takes it on the chin as a learning experience, even in kata.
