Then call him Saotome Shihan.
Just an interesting note - I noticed that Mitsuteru Ueshiba was very careful to append "Shihan" to Saotome's name, definitely not "Sensei". Of course, because of his position he is extremely careful to speak in the politest manner about these things. Normal Japanese people are much more casual.

Best,

Chris
