Re: Waka Sensei question

From Hanna B at aikido journal...

Quote:
Here's a Japanese budo gentleman stating that it is very normal to refer to a younger/less accomplished and older/more senior teacher who has the same name, waka sensei (young teacher) and osensei respectively. Any one who has heard this before?
The link she referenced may be found here:
