This really does help. My teacher regularly encourages junior people to go all out when training with yudansha -- male or female -- we wouldn't be yudansha if we couldn't take care of ourselves. And that in turn shows more junior people -- male or female -- the standard they're trying to reach.

Agreed! Maybe this might also show the other students (as if you weren't already ) you're willing to play the game in their language. Couldn't hurt, to have that greater exposure, chat to your sensei?

The world changes when you do.
