Re: How to address a Shihan, Sempai, or Sensei?
What is the difference between when you use <first name> sensei versus <last name> sensei or just "Sensei"? Also, when half the participants at a seminar are instructors at their own dojos, is it still okay to call them by their offered (generally first) name?
hi Carrie Campbell,
Well in General point of view being a Sensie is earned rank and ranking is priority, when it comes to addressing a person with rank. + their name to be more specific.
