Re: multiple teachers in one dojo
Actually the reason is I am so thankful for their presence. One was team captain of one of the strongest competitive teams in Japan, one was Japan champion, another was professional deshi to the top guy for 3.5 years.
The dojo is actually my call and I do run the class (even though two of the above outrank me). They defer to me and I make damm sure they get something out of the class. All three of the above are Japanese and used to the Japanese system. Perhaps they get something out of my class beyond the ordinary - who knows. None of them have to be there.
