rmclain said:Hi MMA,
Was Franc the instructor teaching that day? Sorry your school had to deal with someone like that.
Mr. Randall,Jonathan Randall said:I think the answer would be to break off the sparring session with that particular student rather than "take him out" - just because one person fails to act with integrity doesn't mean it should be answered in the same manner.
This is a limited electronic medium, so perhaps you meant that he should have defended himself rather than go for "payback" as it sounded like in your post. If so, I apologize.
kmguy8 said:wow... ok, I would never allow a walk in to spar on thier first day. regardless of experience claimed (90% of the time that's crap anyway).
At my school I insist students spend a week or two if experienced training so I can see them move. 1-2 months before I let a newbie throw leather and feet.
Second, after the first warning I would have been watching or put a senior on him as was recomended. Second time he would have been asked to sit and watch or be asked to leave.
If I let him make to a third time the last hting I would do is beat him up myself. jesus, that is BEGGING for a lawsuit. If one of my assistants did this in my school they would be fired. You can not throw your own saftey rules away, it is negligent and your contract limiting your liability (assuming you are at least that bright) is worthless...
the instructor is lucky he was not waiting outside with a cop. I would start training elsewhere if your school is taking this jack-*** as a student. would you really spar with him again?
Michael Billings said:I seldom let someone I do not know spar with us, unless vouched for by one of my students. That being said, I have allowed it in the past, but probably should not have.

rutherford said:Guys, this thread is a month old. Also, Savage, I agree that his skin color shouldn't have been mentioned, we're all colorless here and it's uinimportant. However, I think you took your point a bit far.
I think I didnt take it far enough....there are lots of people who have these attitudes..I just wanted MMA kid to clear up why it was important to mention that he was black!
I am not black...but I am brown (the blacks of the south pacific)and we are all colored people...whatever your colour...how would this forum take it if I poster that I beat the crap out of a 6 2 White Fellow! rather than say i took on a 6 2 martial artist!
I humbly apologise to the forum..I feel strongly about this....please take the thread back on topic...move along nothing to see here!
