I was very intimidated by my Sensei the first day, but not because of anything he did -- it's just that he was so awesome. And he is very reserved and traditional in running the class.

I stopped feeling intimidated after that first class, when he very humbly checked to make sure I wasn't feeling frustrated from trying to learn so many new things. He sincerely wanted to make sure I felt good about his class, and seemed just as concerned about that as I was about hoping I wouldn't disappoint him.
