Re: How to address a Shihan, Sempai, or Sensei?

Some say using "shi" when addressing an individual with that title is bad luck, or even disrespectful. I don't know if that holds true with "Shihan" or directly addressing one as such ('shi' having some relationship to death, from what I've been told).

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
