New effer at the dojo
So last night we got a new dude start training at the dojo, during ju-jutsu the man gets very energetic all of the sudden and hurts my knee. The guy is new, so you kind of have people to be a little bit of an asshole or a showoff.
But now i'm hurting and i won't be able to go to the gym in a few days, maybe more.
Well, the question is, when i get back on the matt, should i hurt this ************ or not?
Well it depends really. I have been hurt by people in the dojo that go 100% while praticing moves. I normaly just flat out say hey you have to lay off.
I got a good instructor and he normaly he notices and will tell them they have to stop or they are gone. He will use them for a test dummy sometimes and they usually get humbled and either quit or they straighten up and become good students. If the guy is hurting people and the instructor dont know about it you should tell him. If he tries to hurt people or you again after being warned dont go easy on him. I am not saying to hurt him bad but yeah id give him a taste of his own medicine.
If he's never trained in anyting b4- benefit of the doubt.
If he does it again quietly explain what he is doing.
If he does it again- hit him with the planet extremely hard. Repeat till he appreciates how much he has to learn.
He who attains his ideal by that very fact transcends it
I like my Te like I like my tea- from Fujian province and without any bullshit in it. Oh, and green. And scented with jasmine blossoms...

At one point i was going to tell him to take it easy a bit, but i didn't want to seem like a bitch infront of a new guy. What an asshole!
I had similiar issue. This dude is like 20 lbs heavier than me, he had training, I specificaly told him my right arm is injured, and I can't really use it so don't try any subs on my right arm. He kept f-ing doing it all night and kept saying "oops, i forgot but hey i'll take what i can."

Since I know he is no match for me from standing, I did him a favor and always agreed esp since he was 'higher' color belt. But not after that night...we're going to start from standing and I will be taking him down hard and say "sorry forgot to go easy but i'll take it."
Edit: To answer your question: No, don't hurt him intentionally but go hard so he knows you were just taking it easy on him and not anymore cause he was being a dick and you were hurt.

What the heck, just tell him. He's the noob there; you're in a position to tell him how things go at your dojo. That doesn't make you a bitch, it makes you helpful in getting the guy dialed in. Could be he's overdoing it so as to fit in, and to avoid seeming like a ***** . . . a little communication could cure that.

Never let your guard down with new guys. I speak from experience here. Expect the slashing elbow and spazmatic knee and pass-with-the-headbutt.
If he's never trained before, he probably doesn't even realise he's doing anything wrong, and probably still doesn't have a lot of control. Hopefully your instructor will say something to him - at our club the instructors always talk to new-starters before we start to roll and explain that you shouldn't just crank on your subs full blast etc, always stop if someone taps, even if you don't think what you did was tap-worthy, and just to look after your training partner in general. If that doesn't happen I guess you have to say something to him, and I know it's hard to do without worrying that they'll think you're a wuss, but the guy really needs to be told.
Maybe he's done some training, but who knows how long he's been out of the loop. Anyways, in your dojo, he is the n00b, so tell him to have some control. **** him up if he doesn't so that he gets the point. It may also be that he is an ashole showoff trying to set some dominance in the pack, but you won't know until you tell him. Anyways, **** him up if it's for certain that he is an ashole or he is not paying attention :evil6:

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
Exactly, next time you get on the mat tell him to calm the **** down. He's not learning anything by spazzing and will result in no one wanting to roll with him.

Don't "let him work" at all, ever, if he doesn't learn mat etiquette, i.e., randori is to learn from one another and to point out and correct weaknesses in you or your partner's games, it's not a ADCC, PrideFC or UFC match.
Most of us are not professional fighters and have to go to work the next day or want to be able to play with our children.....newb dicks either get submitted quickly and/or choked out to learn 'em, or they sit on the sidelines like scolded children for "not playing well with others."
