No pain no gain.
Next time you are practicing your best throw, return the favor over and over until he gets the message.
Dude, I learned martial arts in the 80s, old school karate style. Getting hit by kendo sticks, no mats, etc. At 8 fricken years old. As a teenager, full contact was sweet. Even in my 20's, I wanted to battle, be it BJJ, kick boxing, full contact karate, etc.
Now,I'm pushing 40. The game has changed. If I'm in a gym that thinks I'm a sissy because someone doesn't understand proper safety, or the instructor doesn't care- I'm in the wrong gym. I wish I would have been smarter earlier, as my body betrays me at times due to years of abuse.
If its a new school- the instructor should be emphasizing a positive training environment to help increase student base. If he doesn't, find a new place to train. Injuries are part of training, no doubt- but avoidable injuries due to stupid or careless people have no place in a gym.
