After some traveling and staying in Thailand, I moved to a new city and started going to a Muay Tahi gym. This was the most serious place I found that has daily classes, I was hoping for something close to the Thai level of intensity. I have about 6 months of total experience, never competed.
There are many people in the class and the teacher seems to be mostly focused on the pro fighters, giving little personal attention. One of the fighters was working with me a little one-on-one.
I didn't like him from the first moment, he was very cocky and sarcastic (25yo). Instead of plainly explaining things he demonstrated with excessive force and generally talks down. For example: I caught his leg wrong, he said "don't do it" when I asked why he said "I'll show you" and a few minutes later in a similar situation kicked me hard in the head.
Usually, we do push-ups between training rounds. When I trained in Thailand they always did it, but here they sometimes do and sometimes don't. As I want to get in better shape, I kept doing the push-ups even if others didn't, while just standing around waiting for the teacher or the bell, or water breaks.
Last class I did again one-on-one with that guy and he went strong at me, in a way I could not respond well, or learn. When he was holding me and I tried to tap out, he ignored me at first, and only after some time stopped and said: "this is not judo, you don't tap out." At first, I ignored it and I just told him to I don't know how to respond to what he is doing.
In a very sarcastic manner (which at first I didn't even understand) he told me that I should not be doing push-ups when nobody else does, and listen to the teacher instead (I never done it while the teacher was talking), hinting that going strong on me was a "disciplinary punishment". He said that in his usual talking-down way, that training in Thailand doesn't make me a pro like him. At first, I tried to respond but quickly realized that there is no talking with that guy.
I finished the class and left with no intention of coming back.
What would you do in that situation?
