I think I found a way to keep the kids in line.

Go here and read this because I'm too lazy to repost it. It's point #10.

I think a piledriver or DDT is just as effective in a small classroom.

I tried a suplex once but the class was too small. The kid ended up being upside-down against the wall behind me.

Classes need wrestling ropes so we can throw bad kids against them and then apply a clothesline or dropkick when they spring back.

The best however is the sleeper. I think many students already apply this to themselves however.....

Usually our sleeper hold is our grip on the sujo bottle in the morning.

They all seem to think elbow drops are pretty keen at my hagwon. Kids are goofy.

Wrestling in the classroom rocks. Kids are amazed that I know about throwing the victim's arm over my shoulder as I set them up for the perfect chokeslam.

Now, if only I could do a powerbomb without making it look like sexual harassment...

I have that same worry when I pick a kid up for a power slam.

I was giving this kid an arm bar the other day, and it was having no efect on him. Hes a grade 3 student, but damn, I was shocked. Then, as I was about to modify it into a cross face chicken wing, this other kid said me too. So I did the same arm bar, and almost broke his fucking arm. Glad he wasn't my student!

I used to wrestle them constantly. Now I just threaten them with the director, who is a bit of a savage. I don't have to expend all that energy anymore. Let the Korean's system work for you.
