So there's a new guy that just joined our gym. He has some knowledge of combat sports (mostly striking) but has absolutely zero ground game. Dude is ripped, athletic and seems to be picking up techniques pretty fast. Real nice and respectful guy. How do you guys usually treat new teammates like this. Do you spend extra time with him because of his potential or do you let him learn at the same pace as everyone else? Should he take his lumps as a newb so he can feel humbled? There may be a risk if he starts tapping out 3-4 stripe whitebelts after his 1st month that he might develop an ego. I have two main instructors and in the past they have been on opposite sides of the fence on this type of situation.
