I'm thinking 'gratitude is gratitude.'

My students just kinda started calling me Jensei out of the blue one day. I really like the humor and friendliness inherent in it. And if anyone is in doubt as to who sensei is they can ask the dojo-cho: me.

Aikido needs be taken seriously, but we don't need to take ourselves so seriously, honestly.
Love this.
