Re: When Sensei denies pomotion because of spouse?
Sounds to me like ranking issues are near the bottom of problems at *this* dojo. A senior member of the dojo (*any* senior member) disrespects the sensei, from the sidelines, during class? Undercuts the sensei's approach in his own class? Responds to criticism by using his personal relationship with sensei to get back at the other guy?
Jeez. If you can train effectively in this dojo, God bless you. I don't think I could handle it.
