boy that was pretty amazing Common Cents after reading all of your responses to the comments on your post I come to see it as a comedy routine. You know the one about the guy screaming at his friends that he is a real sensitive person, or the pickpocket saying he hates thieves. I mean wow, you talk about how you want to be a sensei, a true sensei, but then you not only dictate to people what exactly that is ( not a very open and humble approach) but then you harang and insult your fellow contributors. And you somehow manage to close with what is it? be open and humble. Nice touch.
At any rate, I am on the verge of a master instructor test ( 4th dan) in a year or two and I am constantly realigning and a refocusing my energy to be a better teacher, warrior, martial artist and just to be a better man.
The closest thing I can think of for a real sensei is, someone whom you have a relationship with and whose advice you value.who helps you grow through the common medium of your martial arts class.
Perfection is a path, not a place
Good Luck finding it, me I will just enjoy the journey.

A true Sensei is someone who will teach you everything without holding anything back, a true sensei is someone who will treat everone in the dojo with equal respect. A true sensei is one who will not use you as his punching bag (ulike mine), a true sensei will not say his art is about character development and then tell you that he wants you to go around town picking fights to give his dojo a good reputation (like mine), a true sensei will not set up in a fight and be bias (wanting your opponent to beat the heck out of you and giving him all of the points [being biased], or set up a fight cause your mischievous friend wants to beat you up), a true sensei will not beat you up just to show off or simply because he can (like mine).

A true Sensei in our modern times is a good entrepreneur!

Based on a true story.

Mine! lol

I'm getting a new Sensei!

RAVEN,

In the UK we have mastered the greatest of all martial arts:- SARCASM.

I consider myself a grandmaster at this most vicious of MA. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

I do understand that In the USA this art is little practiced and even less appreciated, but come on, I wasn’t even subtle!!!!!!!!!!!

That is what makes a great sensei, being so damn good at ones art that others cant even begin to grasp the skill involved.

Raven you are reduced in rank by 2 grades. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]


regards,

Mark

Why is every one still so upset?

He was an idiot, he was annoying and rude, but now he has gone.

If he is still reading here although not posting (which apparently many trolls do to see how much upset they have caused) he will be well pleased to see he is still being given bandwidth.

Don't give him the satisfaction.
