If it were a gym teacher I probably wouldn't think twice about it. But what was he trying to do? Teach the 'science' of wrestling?

Can't screw around with students and think its sexual. Geeeez what ever happened to logic and judgement.

Come on now. A kid wanted to get tough with a teacher and all in fun the guy tossed him a good one. No harm no foul. You wonder why people are so bitchy these days.

The kids probably loved it and probably dig the teacher as well.

This was not abuse, just a guy horsing around and having a little fun with his students.

I think the students will have more respect for him because he interacts with them on a more personal basis instead of giving the impression "I am the are the student." He can have a little horseplay with them and they will show their respect and pay attention when class is in session. Did you notice the class stood up for him by writing letters? This must mean they appreciate him and he is a good guy. We could use more teachers like him.

looks like horseplay to me. Did the student complain? What's the problem?
