Re: The Budo Teacher - Student Relationship

I will say Peter that the relationship and the closeness has varying degrees depending on what point your are in the journey. You allude to that in your blog I think. I have seen some Western student/teacher relationships (non-Budo) that are as nurturing, supportive and requiring mutual obligation as anything I have seen in Japanese Budo.
