    So yeah my mma master every class loves to make comments about me and rip into me hardcore. I've been doing it for like 6 months, is this normal?

    I never thought I'd say this, but Holy Lurker :eek:.

    If your teacher refers to himself as "master," something's a little sketchy. On the other hand, he could see more potential in you than other students, and is trying to push you harder. I saw "army" in your profile, so you should be used verbal beatdowns.

    Everyone is real friendly at my school, especially our head coach... and he was supposedly International Masters Black Belt Champion in 2002, 2003, and 2005. So I'd say it is pretty weird for your "master" to be acting like a dick.

    All the trainers/instructors I've worked with were all super accessible, friendly, and supportive. Don't get me wrong, they work me hard and would give me hell if I ever tried to cheat in drills and exercises, but if your trainer is a genuine ass to you and refers to himself as "master", there is something really wrong. He might just be trying to motivate you in another way though. If you don't like it, get out of there. Different people will excel in different environments. It will be better to find a gym that fits your style and personality.

    Bottom line is that you're paying them. If you dont like the service you are recieving, leave. In my experience (which is limited to BJJ) the more highly decorated the individual, the better they are at teaching and explaining, even to the newest students. Ego doesnt really have much place on the mat IMO.

    my trainer shoots the shit every now and then with students cracking jokes about them but it's all in good fun and everyone laughs, but if he is referring to himself as master and treating you really bad maybe you should switch schools

    my old instructor did that to me, but it was because he had much higher expectations from me than anybody else. Didn't realize it at the time and it also would upset me pretty often.

    I got the same thing from my wrestling coach in high school. He was convinced I had so much potential, but I would get really nervous before my matches and forget everything I knew. In one match I lost to a guy who has been overweight and had been cutting just minutes before. The coach wouldn't even look at me for like 3 days after. I was like :wtc: .

    Does he treat other students the same way? Maybe he thinks you respond better with negative reinforcement?
