    8-year-old misbehaving in your martial arts class? Shoot him with a bb gun

    Martial arts instructor fires BB gun at 8-year-old

    by SCOTT GUTIERREZ
    THE OLYMPIAN

    Jan. 27, 2006

    OLYMPIA — Police are investigating a martial arts instructor who disciplined an 8-year-old student by shooting him in the abdomen with an Airsoft gun loaded with plastic BBs. :qright6:

    The boy’s parents filed a complaint this week against Scott Morgan, sensei and president of Black Lake Jujutsu, a nonprofit dojo at 1202 Black Lake Blvd. that offers an after-school program for youngsters to study homework and martial arts. It also has adult classes.

    The boy was not seriously hurt. The BB, fired from about six feet away, caused some pain and left a red mark that lasted a few days. His parents have pulled him from the program. The case was assigned to an officer to investigate, Olympia police Sgt. John Hutchings said Thursday. The incident happened Monday, after the student threw a pencil at another student. Morgan said he made an error in judgment and apologized to the student and the student’s mother. He said he had been ill and stressed and was frustrated with the student’s disruptive behavior. He said it was a “knee-jerk” reaction.

    “When I make my mistakes, I have to be responsible enough to say I was wrong,” he said. The boy’s mother, Rebecca Orbeck, said she’s disturbed by the behavior and by the fact that the instructor didn’t tell her until she confronted him. Her son reported it to her Tuesday, the day after it happened. The boy was taken into Morgan’s office, where he sat down, she said. The instructor then said “this is going to hurt” as he picked up the gun and fired once, according to Orbeck and her son. The boy said the office door was closed; Morgan said his door was open.

    “I just want to make sure other kids are safe,” Orbeck said. “I feel that, as an adult, he should know better. He’s there to set an example, and this is not the type of discipline he’s trying to teach those kids. I can’t believe he did that.” Both of the boy’s parents work for The Olympian. Airsoft guns often are used during games in which participants try to shoot each other with paintballs or plastic BBs. The Orbecks said they wonder why the gun was at the dojo.

    Morgan said the spring-loaded gun belongs to his son, who stores it at the school. His son and older students occasionally strap on safety goggles and use Airsoft guns for games. It was out on his desk, which is why he reached for it Monday. He said he now keeps it locked up.

    He said he has never used it on another student.

    I kind of like that instructor. Kids nowadays are spoiled rotten and disrespectful, they need a reality check. :evil1:

    That kinda pisses me off.

    The first thing......VERY first thing I did when I got my airsoft was SHOOT MYSELF.

    Guess what. It don't hurt that bad.

    When I first read the thread title, I though he might have used a CO2 BB gun. I've been shot with a CO2 powered BB. I don't recommend it.

    Kids nowdays are sissified. The more I take the bus when school gets out, the more I hate kids......and the more my bitch-slap hand itches.

    BTW: airsoft guns are good for learning pistol disarms. Cuz they shoot stuff, unlike rubber guns that do....uh....nothing.

    Hey, it's not like the guy was going for a head shot. The only thing the instructor should be disciplined for is not firing center mass, how can you miss hitting the center mass at 6 ft away? :angry4:

    Airsoft doesn't hurt that much at all. The instructor should use a stun gun.

    Agreed. I guess I should've added [/sarcasm] tags?

    Also, that Tazer is pretty slick.
    If i couldn't throw lightning bolts from my fingers, I'd want one of those.
