was doing a kick boxing class and the student i was paired up with had a strong roundhouse kick, i was holding thai pads for him. i told the student to kick lighter and he did as it was hurting my arms, but instructor came along and edged him to kick harder even when student said yea he cant handle the kick . i could take it for 6 kicks but after that my arms started to really hurt. i evaded one kick as it was too hard and instructor said you need toughen up.

i think instructor was trying in injure me. my arm is bruised also got feeling instructor doesnt like me as he didnt come along and give me pointers in my technique but he did with other studentss

whats your thoughts.

Unfortunately certain gyms view certain people as their prime potential students and view others, probably you, as meat. Gyms typically have this old fashioned machismo and it's not surprising that kind of situation would happen in a gym like that. You may need to consider changing to another gym or if there is a gym owner above the instructor talk to him about his instructors mismanagement.
