Won't leave area to take a break

I'm frustrated by how choppy our MM is. Very often during morning meeting the same kids yell out, interrupt etc. Then I have to stop to remind them of the rules. We always review the expectations before meeting and their importance, I praise correct behavior and I kindly remind kids who interupt. Yesterday after the same student needed to be reminded 4 times I asked him to return to his seat to take a break. He said "No" and refused to go.

What do I do now? I felt it was a bigger interuption to argue with him, so I ignored him and continued meeting.

This is just 1 example of defiance some of my kids have shown. What is the logical consequence for defiance. These children have refused to go to a rest area, as well as leave the room with my buddy teacher.
