My experience is similar to Peter`s, except I don`t get to talk to Doshu and I haven`t had the longevity in the art that he has. Most of the Shihan that I know are usually addressed as Sensei, I remember asking a 6th Dan once how I should address Endo Shihan, he said "Sensei". One exception that I hear regularly, Koyama Sensei, our Shihan is often referred to as Kaicho rather than Sensei.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
