Ki Symbol Re: Gettting Called Sensei

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?

Sensei only if I am teaching class and that's so students have a good polite habit if they visit other dojos or go to seminars.

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

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

Sensei usually

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

Craig or Sensei or Sir (this is Texas) or hey
