    15? Seriously? I think Omega has it right.

    I work at a music store that teaches lessons and we run into similar problems occasionally (with teaching methods, that is, not with sparring). I usually handle it well, but I think your reaction would be a good example of exactly how to handle that kind of complaint. Your poise is remarkable.

    There's probably nothing you can do to make the mom happy. "Suck it up," put gently or otherwise, usually doesn't shake the doting mother resolve. Just stick to your guns, she'll either come around or the kid will be out of class.

    But seriously, 15? Kid should be ashamed of himself.

    One of those protective mothers that doesn't actually ever watch her child train? :) I think you were ... too nice when you handled that. But that's just me.

    nail on the head!

    how often is it that the parents who watch their kid train will back up the instructor when the parents who are out sucking dicks believe any dumb **** the kids come up with.

    i had one parent get pissy with me because class ended before i could get around to everybody for a turn at focus mitt drills and his child told him that i ignored him and skipped over him for the entire class.

    i was shocked that the father actually believed that. i had to get my parent helpers to vouch for the fact that every child got a turn at everything, but we just ran out of time for the last exercise.

    I think it's because some (not all) parents tend to see Martial Arts training as an after school day care thing. Sad but true :(

    yeah, the ones that never ever ever ever ever never not once not even for a few minutes never even thought that it might be the slightest bit important never ever watched even a minute of a class their child was in.

    until they come to belt testing with their shitty handicam to see their little **** fail the test and just got an electric tape stripe on their belt.

    then they get all kinds of spanish inquisition pissed at you.

    are you talking about those parents?

    I'm really glad there are some badass TKD teachers still out there. You guys are hard to come by and I can't imagine how things would have worked out for me if I hadn't found one while I was training in TKD. As for 15 year old cry babies, you come by one of those pricks every once in a while. They have no interest in classes whatsoever, they just want to get a black belt without putting in the effort.

    He was 15??? ****, reading your post I got the impression he was like eight or something. Actually, eric cartman sprung to mind.

    Sounds like a wee bit of attention seeking to me. I can't imagine a 15yo guy crying a river because a girl kicked his ass. How old is she anyways?

    I think you handled it perfectly, btw.

    ACTUALLY, sparring against a girl is pretty tough for me too. Okay, so far I've only sparred those that could barely throw a punch and I just had to babysit them through it (like with obvious counters and slow, wide openings). But still, I am way more soft on them. I barely touch them. I've sparred a few guys on that level and I definitely punished them (some) more on their mistakes.
    Hmmm, am I wrong here or what?

    I'm sorry,but 15 is NOT a "kid". Young adult,teen,...whatever,but not "kid". You were alot politer/nicer to the "kid" than alot would have been.
