    Corporal discipline?

    Hi guys (and gals),

    Is it to be expected that an instructor would intimidate students using threats of being hit or 'beaten down' during the course of a regular class?

    thanks,
    MAUser

    Yes, unless you wanna take some pussy style that doesn't involve either A) getting punched or kicked, B) have your limbs twisted up into uncomfortable positions, or C) getting slammed on the ground all the time.

      You mean "train or you'll be sorry when your classmates beat you down"?

      That's no threat. That's just a fair warning.

        It's one thing to say you're open to attack and thrown something to make you remember to keep your hands up (and you will) or a quick pop when you're not paying attention. Keeps you focused.

        It's another to if it's some random screaming that he's going to kick your ass.

        That said if you were ok with it you wouldn't be posting asking about it.

        Edit: not that I'm an expert, but i've never heard about that type of thing in akido. kind of doesn't fit. :wrestlera

        You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

          You'd think taunts of being spirtually superior would be used to wear you down until you no longer had the will to return to class.

            Be a little more specific so as to add some context.

              Either that or just never post again.

                If the instructor is teaching Aikido, it shouldn't be threatening at all.

                  OK ... OK ... Say you are in class and by mistake while doing push ups or some other excersise you say ... "shit" ... then the instructor comes by and asks you to stop while he kicks you in the abs because you said "shit"

                  Thats one example.

                    How hard of a kick? If it's just a love tap, then it's fine, after all, you broke a rule. If it's a "oh my God I can't breathe!" kick, then just leave.

                      Poop loops is correct. Outside sparring the sifu/sensei/couch/sugar daddy is not entitled to actually hurt you. A playful hit is OK, in my opinion, but actually hurting you is not acceptable.

                      A hand under his head.

                          If he kicked you with the intent to fuck your ribs up..you'd be an idiot to stay.
                          Sounds like the guy likes to have power trips. Ask him if he's ever stumped his toe and said "damnit" If he says yes Slap the shit outta him.

                          Gotta balance the universe.

                              Confession.: When I was like 8 years old I took Karate lessons. The instructor actually made me cry. No kidding. Once when we were doing something he was yelling in my face, telling me how worthless I was, etc and made me hit him in the stomach. He laughed. Yelled some more. Threatened to hit me back if I didnt hit him harder. Laughed some more. Pushed me around. Sad really because at the time I was scared he was really going to hurt me. The second time during sparring he kept telling me to keep my hands up and protect my face. Then he came over and kicked me in the stomach. Hard enough to lift me in the air and knock the wind out of me. I crumbled. He yelled at me. I couldn't even take any air in to cry. So I sat there in a ball for a few minutes unable to really cry. Just wanting to cry but unable.

                              Very theraputic. I think I'm going to go have a good cry in the bathroom real fast.
