    If I were you I think I'd love to spar with him. It'll quickly show up the weaknesses in my own game.
    -This is definately true, but it can scare away timid newbs. Blue belts should definately learn to handle these guys.

    My instructor always gives a short speech at the end of training. He talks a lot about this. Basically, there's a guy like this in every school that never gets any better and everyone hates to train with. Don't be that guy.

    I agree with the people who advised simply controlling the guy until he's completely demoralized and exhausted. If he has any awareness at all, he'll start to realize that the advanced guys are always incredibly relaxed and try to emulate them. Either that, or he'll eventually quit.

    I am kind of a "what if" guy. Or maybe to put it in better terms, a "what now" guy. I ask alot of questions and shut the **** up, listen and observe the answers. It's good to be enthusiastic. But know-it-alls and people with something to prove are a pain in the ass.

    Yeah I agree. I think the blue belt who got "benchpress-tossed" was going about 40-50% and he had a 50-60 pound weight disadvantage. After that happened he didn't let that guy get away with anything.

    That's pretty much how I'd describe what I do as well. If I get somewhere where I'm clueless I just tell the guy I'm training with about my complete lack of knowledge in this position. Sometimes they tell me step by step. Sometimes they ask me what I think and try to make me problem solve and correct me where I'm wrong. I'm really lucky in that all of the people who are blue belt and higher are extremely helpful as are the advanced white belts.

    WHen I talk about a what if guy i'm not talking about asking questions. I think asking questions is a great idea. I'm talking about posing counters to the technqiue while i'm teaching it. Here's a example. Say you are teaching someone a standing guard pass. You start by showing them how to control the wrist and posture up and are about to show them the proper way to stand from there. At this point they are like, but what if I open my guard and do this, and they then proceed to try to counter you. It's obvious to everyone else that this technique works in a certin sitaution, and that in other situations you do other things. So you try to explain that if they did that, you start to try to do something else instead, and then they say ok, but what if I did this, and try to counter this new technique. Now you are completely off what you are trying to teach the noob and are actually having a shitty verbal chess match. No one learns anything, and you wasted your time.

    Screw talking..... Show me. Demostrate it on me. That's the only way I seem to learn is hands on. I usually spend most of the time at practice getting owned by the trainers. But it pays off when we "roll". The trainers comment on how quick I pick things up and apply them. The owner of the club says that every time we sparr it's like fighting a better guy. I think this has alot to do with just shutting up and doing it.

    Ah ok. I see what you mean. People sometimes ask that stuff too and he just quickly goes, ' I could do this (shows other technique) you can do lots of variations, do this one for now, we'll show that one next" that way we end up getting 2-3 techniques from a position.
