Re: Not coping with the new sensei

Janet and Ashley are right. Don't fall into the gossip trap. You could be viewed as inciting the others.

It seems to me, you are down to tradeoffs. If the tradeoffs are not worth it or this is the only dojo in town, you must decide whether you want to accept the tradeoffs or move on or even not train. If other dojos are available, you might want to try them out. Sexually inappropriate comments however should not be tolerated no matter which sex is the target. Unfortunately, it sounds as if you have an instructor that at best is insensitive and at worse down right rude. If you decide to stay, I'd just keep to my own thoughts, train and get what you can get out of the experience. Good luck.
