Re: Sempai-Kohai relationship

This came up because I accidently assumed a spot next to sensei when my and my husband were working together. Like I said before, we both started on the same day.... but evidently sensei has determined that he is my sempai. I would just like to know how this determination is made so I don't mess up when working with other students of my rank.
The determination seems arbitrary and weird. If you started on the same day, your husband simply isn't your sempai.
