in coaching certain drills, the coach attempts to find certain actions, words, phrases, mannerisms or subjects that cause the student doing the drill to become distracted from the drill by reacting to the coach. As a bullfighter attempts to attract the bull’s attention and control the bull, so does the coach attempt to attract and control the student’s attention, however the coach flunks the student whenever he succeeds in distracting the student from the drill and then repeats the action until it no longer has any effect on the student. Taken from a Spanish and English sport of “baiting” which means “to set dogs upon a chained bull,” but mainly “to attack or torment especially with persistent insult, criticism or ridicule.” Also “to tease.” (LRH Def. Notes)
