Thank you every one for your input on this subject. The individual I mentioned has had another incident with another emplyee. This employee has a more influential and supportive supervisor, so things are stirring a bit now.
I suppose there is little one can do, one to one, with a superior who behaves in this manner. Some have a personal bearing that precludes this treatment I think. Those who do not are best served by letting the aggressor dig his own grave, by assuring his behavior does not go unnoticed.
It seems as though the legal response is another route in the "force continuum." A route that is certainly not available in some situations. It may also be the eventual result of the force continuum in some situations. I'm a beginner in this arena and I very much appreciate the availability of these forums.
Mr. Canna, thank you.
Mr. Testa, thank you. Your school sounds like a very good one. My instructors follow the same methodology with students and sparring. But we do have a percentage of students who have started at the beginning in our school for the purposes of learning our system, but who already hold rank in another style, or were NCAA wrestlers or successful amateur boxers. I, as a 1st kyu, have been responsible for teaching basics to individuals such as these as have two of my friends who just reached shodan. We all spar each other in class and some of these guys can flat kick my butt if they want to. Respect and control are key. "We're all here to learn and we all have to get up and go to work in the morning" is the saying (Kun?). Again Mr. Testa, thank you.
Alan, you are dead right. That is my point about personal bearing. For some reason this individual does not take this approach with me, yet I hold no more authority than my friend T.E. And he waited until I was gone to start his tirade with T.E.
Thanks again everyone, (I still want to kick this guy's behind)
