I'm sure most here will agree, it's very hard to leave a club once you've been there a while. However, I've had to do it, and it IS relatively painless once you've done it.
Students deserve at least as much respect as Sensei...
Or if you don't want to leave, a few frank words may clear the air. (Or make you have to leave anyway
) This sounds too much like ego influencing the dojo.
Again, good luck. Just don't accept the status quo
