Hi folks,

So, to try to look at this "calling oneself/others 'sensei'" thing from a different angle...

For those of you who teach classes on a regular basis:

1) What do you like being called on the mat?

2) What do you like being called off the mat?

3) What do you end up being called on the mat?

4) What do you end up being called off the mat?

1) Sensei/Larry

2) Larry

3)Sensei/Sir/Larry

4)Sensei/Sir/Larry

The Sir thing comes from the brainwashing you get in Caribbean schools where you call a teacher sir, and I teach at a University.
