Re: Not coping with the new sensei
One of my teachers said the following: It is better to spend three years searching for a really good teacher, rather than three years studying with any teacher.
The important thing for you to consider is whether or not that teacher is the best available teacher for you. If the teacher is just going through something, then a wait-and-see approach might be alright. I think that looking in your community for what else is available might help you in your decision making. Ultimately, you should feel that your choice reflects the best teacher possible for you, in your geographical area.
