I sincerely apologise, and from this day on I swear never to use my comedy breasts again...

...no, it's no good, so don't try to persuade me...

...my mind is made up...

Why make such a big deal about it.

People (Adults) interact socially in any given number of situations. Everytime they meet someone they interact at a certain level. A karate club is no different. If a couple met at a sewing circle and a relationship developed, is that wrong. Of course not.

Quite often relationships start as a result of a common interest. That's how people meet.

Also, in any given interface, one of the parties involved will be more experienced in the common interest than the other. So what.

Crushes are one thing. These can develop with younger people at any time during a teacher pupil relationship. These should be dealt with differently from consenting adults.

Have I seen karate relationships develop. Of course. Many engagements, marriages, babies, divorces etc.

Don't put MA teachers on a pedestal. They have a right to meet people in any way they choose. Providing it does not affect the manner in which they teach you their MA, which is what you have gone to them for, it's none of your business.

Viper & John L,

I agree with you completely, but can we get back to the important subject of Charlie and her comedy breasts……

I think its totally inappropriate for a master and student to develop any sort of relationship. I think that degrades both the master and the school. Of course people get crushes, that is totally natural and happens all the time: teacher/student, doctor/patient, therapist/client to name a few - but does that mean its appropriate to act on those urges? I don't think so. My 2-cents.

Long as it doesn't get in the way, which takes some serious control, it's cool by me. The self-control is the big issue, I'd say. Not everyone has enough.

Yo!

In my dojo, senseis are not allowed to marry colored belts until they become black belters themselves. They can marry outsiders. And their wives could decide to study Karate later on. But a teacher and a student are not allowed to get married.

Osu!

im not a instructor but i did det involved with a woman in my dojang. only being 19 and she being 29 it seemed like a good idea at the time. after 2 weeks of fun naturaly things didn't work out and seeing her on a daily basis training with her got very awkward and i wasn't really able to concentrate on my training. if i new at the time that it was going to mess up my traiing i would have never got involved in the whole situation. my opinion dating in the dojo,dojang,ect. a big mistake.

What a total load of garbage.

And stop putting Osu at the end of your posts, it's insulting. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG](See earlier posts)
