ds is irritating me

We're in his martial arts class... During warm up, he was complaining that he's shoulder hurt and he couldn't do it.... Now they're doing the real stuff and he's not doing it right at all... He's supposed to lay gently on the floor. Instead he's basically jumping and body slamming the ground. He's not listening to the instructor at all. The teacher will say, watch me then we'll do it together... Ds is doing it during his explanation. I'm half tempted to pull him if he can't listen/pay attention.

I know I'm irritated, and I'm over reacting but seriously, he's like this all day. Everyday

It's $35 for 7 lessons. This was the starter to see if he Could handle it... We've tried other sports and he didn't get into those. This one, he likes going to the class, just not listening.... But yea, this will be the last session until I can figure something out... But I don't want him to quit something midway through

He needs to be in something physical. He's overweight and even though I took the games and TV out and into storage, all he does is sit at home.

If he can't listen then there is no use in paying for lessons.

Pull him aside and tell him to listen an pay attention, or ur walking him out the door and not coming back.

How old is he? If he is overweight, maybe you should just take him walking or rollerblading in the park. Last I checked, that was free. And added bonus, one on one time with him and YOU also get a workout! Until he can be respectful and pay attention to his instructor, its distracting to have him in a group setting.

We have all that... He has a ton of friends, but he's seen a the leader and he never initiates actual running around and stuff. Even tho he's been bad all week, I'm taking him to magic mountain and hopefully he can get some energy out at the play area they have there.

sounds like my son, it gets on my nerves too!

I got him to quit it by bringing his uncle to his games.  My BIL raised 3 boys and is a hockey coach.  He basically yells at Z "C'mon, where's the effort?!!"

It sounds harsh, but sometimes boys need that push.
