Re: abusive sensei

I am sorry to hear about your experience. A sensei has a responsibility to honor the well being, both mind and body that is entrusted in their hands. A one time accidental incident may be forgivable but if such behaviour is the sensei's philosophical style then finding a different dojo may be ideal. Furthermore, if that style is taught/accepted in that dojo then there may be more such incidences among fellow practicioners which may result in someone truly getting hurt. Hopefully you can find a better suited dojo/sensei. Leaving Aikido entirely would be a sad consequence. Peace and Light, Marium
