Controlling and channelling fury

Guise, I debated putting this in the stand-up subforum of fighting techniques but it's more an emotional issue than a fighting issue, and i knew I'd get answers faster here. Last Thursday in point sparring, my teacher's son who is a fairly good fighter and knows it, showboats a little, whatever. I have been hit hard many times in there regardless of what anyone drinking the haterade wants to say about TKD or point sparring. Every time I'm able to shake it off, even the times my teacher was holding my head and asking how many fingers he was holding up. Never mind that you're not supposed to drill ppl in point, if someone lacks control (which a purple belt SHOULD have, the rank this kid is) I try to roll with it and move them around, try to tire them out.

So he's dancing around with his hands down, I'm trying to move him around and charge him all at once which was probably dumb, and he headkicks me so hard I thought I was going to go down. I think it was the adrenaline from being pissed off that stopped that from happening.

In TKD sparring or thai boxing sparring which we also do, that would be OK, but it isn't for point. I deserved to get rocked for not going in with my hands further up but I was so sick of his arrogant "I'm so much better than anyone in the school I'm going to toy with all of then" I threw all my gear off and walked out.

My teacher runs after me, when I said "I gotta pee" around my mouthguard he thought I said "I broke a tooth" which was funny, then he tells me that I have many skills that most people have to work on for way longer than me to get to my level of proficiency, blar blar,and I go "yeah right don't sugarcoat it" and he says "I'm not blowing smoke up your ass" he NEVER says ass anywhere near the dojang, so whatever, maybe he was being honest. I still had to do 30 pushups and I'd love to know if his son had to do them too. he's constantly being told off for lacking control.

Now i want to smash this kid so bad I'm ready to shadowbox around my house, double up my lifting, run half again what I do, whatever I have to. I have caught him several times before b/c I'm smaller and faster. I'm worried that my anger is going to get the best of me again though.

Thanks for reading this wall of text which I tried to break up, and if anyone puts tl/dr I'll cry like a b!tch and I really don't want to smear my eyeliner so fking don't.

Well honestly thats just a kid being annoying and cocky. The point of sparring is to work on technique and if you are bouncing around with your hands down unless thats your style then you are wasting your own time and your partners. I honestly wouldnt spar with him. Actually I would liver kick his ass or go kind of high with an inside leg kick lol but anyway the point of training is to get better so just focus on that when you are training and try not to think about the kid

It's probably good that he's getting you to train harder, but I wouldn't let some snot nose piss me off too much (I completely would). I was thinking though, if you get to spar with him again, go for the ding ding dongggg ring a ding ding ding donnggg accidently. Also completely ignore any advice I may give you and since when have they had kicking in TKD?

Also, do this....

We aren't allowed low kicks in point otherwise I woulda gone after his bad knee long ago. Good advice though. As far as I know that's not his style, he just is cocky like you said. He better be a good fighter, he's been doing this since he was 4. just arrogant.

No cornbread, there are no kicks in TKD at all! We do all those boring azz drills millions of times to prepare for ballet.

Well if he is making you train harder then thats a good thing.

But if he pisses you off to where your anger influences your judgment then I'd say dont spar with him again.

Revenge is a lot of fun but you have to be careful it doesn't hurt you in the process.

question: does he wear a cup?

Definitely don't kick him in the balls if he doesn't have a cup. That would just be mean and my god it would hurt so bad. But sometimes accidents cannot be avoided

(also that dude sounds like a huge douche, how old is the prick)

yes... accidents do happen swp, sometimes you just can't get the leg high enough, and unfortunately his extremities just happened to be in the place your leg was traveling.

I never know if he's wearing a cup or not and I don't ask of course, but whenever someone accidentally throws kind of a low kick I like to yell "cup check!"

He's 18 so he's a kid and is wayyyy too used to being the best fighter in the school, but there have been just enough other more skilled guys around that he feels the need to prove it constantly. there are two guys that I wish would start training with us again, b/c they schooled him on a regular basis.

F#ck it- next time kick him as hard as you can in the basket- possibly twice before he goes down. Then stand over him and say "Your young balls will recover and I just hope you learn from this lesson to not be a show-boating asshole who thinks an opponent might not alter the rules.".
