I was having a good lesson today until I demonstrated a punch and how in karate they twist the hip for extra power.Some guy started shouting calling karate "oriental *",so I told him to get up and I hit him in the temple using the technique.I doubt i'll be seeing him again.He'd only reached white belt in Karate and he came to my school because he couldn't survive in the others.Well,he can get out.

Jackspratt, that student deserves to be thrown out, good call. Anyone disrespecting an art, especially while swearing, should be barred from the club. About hitting him in the temple though, I am not sure, that might be considered assault, and a temple blow is very dangerous.

Nice one, tell him to come by my place and see if he can pull that again.

I couldn't be sure by your post, as if you were saying that you were having a good lesson that day, or were giving a good lesson that day -- and if you were posting this as a student or an instructor. However, and especially for an instructor, but including anyone such as students as well, that was out of line and, well, foolish. You knowing your art isn't "oriental sh(svnible)t", should be skilled enough and confident enough, to not have to resort to such things. That doesn't prove anything, other than a wrong doing on your part.

You can simply ignore the person, or ask them to leave, depending. You could have also subdued them, assuming that was reasonable action, if they wouldn't leave. You should understand as a student or instructor, that people will be disrespectful and mouth off sometimes. That's no excuse to strike someone, especially in the temple. Moreover, to demonstrate this technique?

Excuse me for questioning your post and story, but are you saying that you put more power/force into this strike to this kid's temple to prove a point about how you couldn't deal well with a loud mouth? Tell me, I'm genuinely curious, is this story "oriental sh(bow wow)t"? Yes, that was for the sake of humor, but I just have trouble buying it is all. Cheers!

that's true, it would've been more fun to toss him to the ground and make him feel helpless than to actually hurt the person. I have done this to navy SEALS and marines that think they are really tough, it really makes them change their mind about what I'm teaching and I retain more students that way.
