I find it strange that so many comments express a measure of understanding for this 4th dan female instructor. Had it been a 4th dan male instructor doing the same thing, I'm sure this board would be filled with strong condemnations of his actions.
Personally, I find that kind of behavior absolutely unacceptable from anyone at any rank.
I quite agree.
Also had it been a male instructor, I do not think we would have been wondering whether he'd gotten laid recently or not.
First of all, its just plain an abuse of authority.
Second of all, no it is NOT typical of aikido dojos, and if tolerated is evidence of a very sick dojo culture.
