AikiWeb News: New Article: Learning from the Learned
Posted 10/29/2002 4:58pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Right on the heels of Peter Goldsbury's article is another article on the Japanese terms of "sensei" and "shihan" by Jim Vance entitled, "Learning from the Learned: A Story in Pictures." The article contemplates the differences between instruction and teaching, education and apprenticeship, and the Japanese terms "sensei" and "shihan" (including the derivation of the modern day kanji characters for those two terms from their respective Chinese pictographs). Yet another insightful article on these elusive terms!
