Re: What's your sensei teaching you?
I allways think of it this way: each sensei teaches me his interpretation of what aikido is - both in the major aspect of things and in the fine details. After a while I hope I will become proficient enough to start building my own interpretation. I think a teacher should allways be true to his own understanding of aikido, and thus it is aikido which he is teaching.
Hope this seem relevant to you.
