Hi Aplant,

I have chosen my first instructor because he had offered me reductions/free classes and I had been the one to disrespect him by paying money elsewhere.

I wanted to use my situation to start a thread of my own - taking a leaf out of another`s book and attempting to contribute as opposed to just reading.

My sensei has shown me no disrespect, he is above that sort of behaviour. Simply things are not as smiley as before and I understand why.
Those are my principles, and if you don`t like them...well, I have others.
