Re: Sensing energy from far away: is this achievable or BS?
i think that this is the punch line of your story.
if your "senpai"/"friend" is only keen on showing off and not allowing you a chance to train or improve, then, the rest of the discussion is moot. even if he was O'Sensei reincarnated and had the skills of Bruce Lee with the powers of Anakin Skywalker--if he's not helping you learn anything aside from putting you down and chasing skirts, then you might learn more training with a mediocre aikidoka who actually cares and is interested to help you learn to your highest capacity. IMHO anyway.
This all day. Telling someone to "get better" is not teaching; it's making sure everyone knows who's better already. This guy is to be avoided for that in and of itself--the ESP mumbo-jumbo just makes it worse.
