    Why not just go out in the street and crap fight with a friend then? Why are you in a dojo?
    I can't help it, but you sound so much like RD's chunner diary. Maybe this is the next step of storytelling?
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Senior student should be able to deal with an untrained guy, seeing as you train what you do complain to sensei and get him to have a spiritual chat about the art that is learning how to fight without fighting...

    And a sore finger? Stick it up your ass.

    It sounds like this strong noob would school most of your class if your a senior student, start calling him sensei and he will lighten up on you. He obviously mistakingly got the idea that you were good. Either that or he is just a dick.

    Might I suggest that if "brute force" techniques manage to knock you down/out so much, maybe the problem is more your inability to cope with that?

    As a senior student, you shouldn't get KTFO by sloppy technique. You might be surprised once or twice if you didn't expect the level of contact he puts in, but either you're plain bad or learning a terrible martial art if you're unable to deal with aggression.

    It's not like a potential attacker on the street is going to attack you with peaceful and disciplined aikido techniques.

    If you are able to deal with him easily with the correct technique, he will eventually wise up. Otherwise, the "you're doing it wrong" mentality is simply making you or your art seem incompetent.

    If a senior student is getting beaten by an untrained guy with sloppy technique, your school sucks and you need to get out of there. At every boxing gym I've ever been to, I've been the sloppy untrained guy relying on brute strength, and I've gotten shut down by thousands of people much smaller than me with better technique. Same goes for Muay Thai, BJJ, wrestling, etc etc.

    Ditto to what everyone has said, if you're a senior student you should be able to control him while sparring.

    In sparring anything you use within the rules is fine, it doesn't have to be perfect technique and it doesn't have to be in the curriculum of your MA. If his abilities are so sloppy, you should be able to kick his ass.

    And I would like to add that you (aikislacker) and your martial art(s) suck.
