Re: The Role of Sempai

Our sensei seems to repeatedly remind people when he is showing a technique that we should remember to show compassion towards our uke. He will actually say this a few times while he is demonstrating, and I think it sinks in. He specifically directs this to the older members and references the newer members....He will also sometimes choose peoples' partners for them, saying " I know both of your wrists are injured, so you two work together since you will be more aware of the other's injury."
