I don't think I can maintain butterfly against him, I can barely manage to keep full guard for more than a few seconds if he's really trying to pass. I'm just happy knowing WTF was going on.

I woulnd't be so polite with that douche bag, though. I would simply say, loud and clear for others to hear (including the instructor) that I don't want to roll with him since he keeps subbing me with the same sub and yet refuses to explain, and that I come to roll and learn, and not to be used as an ego-stroking sub dummy.
Chances are that if he does this to Kintanon, he also does it to others. Embarrassing his ego a little may actually wake him up to stop being such a gigantic ****** douchebag.
-- EDIT --
Another possibility is to talk to your instructor in private and explain your concern on this, and ask him to remind the others students next to explain their less experience partners how they got submitted and how they can defend against it next time, that this is not a sub tourney, but a school and they are all partners in it.
Again, my take is that this guy may not only do it to Kintanon but to others as well, and if there is a way to implement some corrective action, even if it involves calling him on it, the better for everybody involved.

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

If I were you, this is what I would do: I would ask the instructor to set up a private lesson where you just go over the half guard position. I'm not a huge fan of privates because I learn more by rolling with a bunch of different people in regular class, but they are great on occassion if you have a specific technique or position you want detailed instruction on.

Apparently Adam (School owner/instructor) is psychic, this is the second time that he's directly addressed something I was concerned about pretty much immediately after I started being concerned about it. So I don't think I need any privates just yet. Now that I know what's going on I can work on it with other people.

"Just as Johnny, in Kansas City, was thrusting his hips to secure the triangle on Jose for the 7th time during their epic roll Billy, in Sacramento, postured at the same time as Jose countered by posturing, breaking the triangle and passing Johnny's guard with knee through the middle....and somewhere, in the Brazilian rainforest in the canopy on top of a mammoth 70' palm tree, a wayward tear rolled down the grizzled face of Helio Gracie while harvesting Acia."
