At what Dan grade is an aikidoka referred to as sensei? Is this a universal understanding within all aikido political groups?
With my dojo, whoever happens to be teaching is called sensei, but only whilst on the mat. Once off, or, once someone else teaches something then you're back to a mere mortal .

I'm going the change that though and get em to call me by my first name, I'm not Japanese after all.

Best Regards,
