  • Sensei or instructor's occupation ?

    It is amazing that our sensei or instructors spare their precious time and commit to teach us. My sensei and previous instructor's occupation are;

    - IT Consultant
    - Computer Hardware engineering
    - Gardener

    Again, thanks to all senseis...

    What is yours senseis occupation ???

    Two are carpenters
    One is a mechanical engineer
    One is a Buddhist reverend
    One is an art restorer
    One is a civil engineer

    The one previous sensei (I refuse to say "former") is a technical equipment sales engineer and purveyor of fine Japanese bogu.

      My kendo o-sensei is a retired gardener (alot of them seem to be); the head instructor is a freelance photographer.

      My iaido sensei is still working as a gardener. My other iaido sensei is a retired Los Angeles County Sheriff - I think...I know his son is an active sheriff now.

        Mine used to own a gardening business but now he's opened a restaurant. He's only got to get into import/export to complete the Japanese immigrant trifecta.

          My chief instructor is a Buddhist reverend, one is a lecturer at the university, another is a tour guide (I think), another is a dean at a Japanese-run university here, and another does bogu repair (used to do something else but quit).

                      Unfortunately, no - my son James was there though.

                      When Ikenaga-sensei came to Portland earlier this year he stayed at my home for the day. He did some calligraphy for us, and liked my cat.

                        Oh neat. I don't remember your son but if you could tell Mr. and Mrs. Smith I said hi. My last name is Ichishita.

                              Thank you. Sorry I don't really remember anyone else. I remember the Smiths because I asked Mrs. Smith to do jigeiko but she didn't want to. I did jigeiko with Mr. Smith though and it was very fun. He has a strong taiatari.
