The difficulty of armed struggle is to make long distances near and make problems into advantages. ................................Sun Tzu,  The Art of War

The Japanese word "sensei" is often used to denote a martial arts instructor. Translated into English, the word is "teacher". However, "teacher" is a less than accurate title for a real sensei.. A sensei is more like a guide. He is one who has traveled the path before you and because of his love of humanity and his art, has come back to show you the way through the darkness. He also knows when to stop and wait for the fog to clear so that you may see the wonders around you.
