Re: Uchi Deshi?

Adrian,

Are you asking for Ben's understanding of what he thinks it is, or you aren't sure yourself?

Literally translated it means "inside student" or "live in student". It's where a person resides inside the dojo whilst they study, doing cleaning, cooking and other tasks whilst also attending their Sensei's needs. You generally have to pay for the privelage. At least that's my general understanding.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
