And you know what - I've specifically asked not to be called sensei within my group - no problems. I have nothing but Japanese students.

I'm not an offical instructor within the JAA (there is a specific designation) and that's one reason I prefer a simple first name. At Honbu I address anyone leading the class as sensei instructor designation or not - that is what's done there.
