Being a high school teacher these days can be a tough job. Students are often rebellious and have some hormone-induced issues with authority figures — and impulse control. There have been incidents of students attacking teachers, but rarely do you find a video of a teacher laying some haymakers on a disrespectful student.

The footage of the incident began when one student approached the teacher and bumped him in the chest. In turn, the teacher pushed the student back. The student then came back with fists balled up and swinging.
Unfortunately for this student, the teacher had no problem teaching him a lesson about respecting authority. The unnamed teacher is seen picking the student up and turning him upside down before body slamming him into a nearby desk.
The student, who looks shocked that a teacher actually hit him back, laid on his back on the desk momentarily stunned until the teacher began to throw some haymakers, a couple of which were a direct hit on the student.
Mayhem ensues in the classroom and during the 30-second video, students are seen yelling and egging the fight on. The teacher and student are still fighting 20 seconds into the video until two other students step in and separate the two.
Towards the end of the video, the teacher can be seen approaching the student once more before a large student stops him from advancing and possibly continuing the brawl.
According to the Daily Mail, the video was originally posted on July 31, 2017, before it emerged on various other sites this week. It’s safe to assume that the teacher was fired for the incident, but there is no confirmation of that since there were no names released with the video.
It’s safe to say that this student learned a valuable life lesson that day: Don’t start a fight with a teacher, and if you do, make sure you can take him.
