Jeesh! I'm sorry, but I can't say which is more surprising to me: That someone actually thinks like that and calls themselves a teacher of Budo, or that someone actually knows all this about their teacher and yet remains their deshi. Had to say it - apologies.
He is another generation and I understand his way off thinking... In all the other aspects he is my hero and I respect him from the bottom off my heart and I'm really sorry he is getting to old to teach. If he was still teaching I'm sure I was going to be his uke more often, if I just spoke to him and tell him that this is for my best, and if I beg him to throw me than he must do it if it's for my best. But still, why do I have to fight to be treated the same way as the others... It's supposed to come natural.
