Judo and Managing Student BehaviorNot sure why but managing student behaviour, is not talked about in Judo circles. As martial artists, are coaches embarrassed over difficult students?

Being able to deal with the defiant child, excitable, emotional or anxious child, are just some of the behaviours that are a critical part of coaching, however, they are surprisingly not talked about a lot in forums and blogs.
I suspect that it has something to do with judo being a martial art and it is considered to be a loss of face to admit that we all struggle with children and adults for that matter who have difficult behaviours.
We could of course just say to the child: "look you don't need to be here and I don't need to teach you so let's just part ways"; thereby only teaching students that we want. I'm sure that there are coaches that do that, but I am not one of them.
