No, it actually happened. I just want to know if this is a BJJ thing and I just need to be better prepared. You've heard me vent in the past about this.

My instructor eventually posted guidelines on every wall of his dojo stating that no one under purple belt was allowed to instruct after he got tired of telling blue and white belts to work on their own game instead of trying to instruct other students.
Bottom line, when visiting someone else's establishment, you do not teach or instruct unless invited. In any classroom, what would your average teacher say to a student who took it upon themselves to teach another student while the teacher was in the middle of their lesson?
That guy was way out of line in my opinion. There's also a good chance he's completely clueless about the matter.Shut the hell up and train.

Wow Omega we must have been separated at birth.
Kid walks in just this week from another academy. We are teaching self defense. Full of questions and "At my school...".
First during free rolling he only rolls with Tim, me and the purples. The unspoken rule is tap him often and don't stop to explain. Reason for the higher ranks is that they can control the spazzing without either one getting hurt.
After class I spoke with him and said "I hope you had fun and we are happy to have you here. Don't be in a hurry to learn everything in one day. Take your time we are not going any where."
"We are excited that you are so happy to be here and want you to become part of our team. We need good competitors and want some fresh talent."
"Take your time and learn the things we have to teach you. Learn our way of doing things and don't be in a hurry. We are here to help you with your goals."

Don't mean to interrupt while the grownfolks are speaking but I feel a sign might help out alot.
A small restaurant in my neighborhood has a sign on the wall that reads:
This is not Burger King.
You will not get it your way.
You get it MY WAY or you don't get the bitch.
So the sign does the work of being an asshole for the owner so he can treat his customers with respect and doesn't have to explain himself whenever some idiot wants him to tweak his recipe. BTW he still has plenty of customers.
I apologize JNP if this is to far off topic.

Thanks for jumping in Beak. I'm actually doing that. I think this is the way to go.

I'd say it stems from the informal culture. Really more than anything I bet he thinks he was being helpful. I've done it myself and recently had to stop myself. I used to coach at my uni club and it's hard getting away from the habit of always trying to be helpful.
But seriously the guy who interrupted you while you were teaching was just stupid.
