This person has practiced for less than half the time I have. I have practiced for 13 years, I think he has for 4 or 5 now.

But the problem is that he is constantly belittling me. He treats me like a 6th kyu or something. Everything I say he says is wrong, or that my understanding is wrong. He posts on the aiki web and in the posts he acts like I am his student and he is a master. It drives me nuts, if my Sensei has promoted me to this rank I think Sensei would want me to be treated like the rank I am.

Thank you
1) He sounds like an irritating person.

2) Rank really doesn't have anything to do with it. He'd be irritating no matter what the rank relationship .

Anyway, IMO rank really shouldn't have anything to do with how you treat a person.
