The kanji characters for sensei

​Sensei​, literally meaning "older person," is a Japanese title given to a teacher. The title sensei isn't limited to teachers of the martial arts; school teachers also have the title sensei. Like with all titles in Japan, sensei is added after the person's name (example: Kano-sensei). However, in the Young Samurai series, a Western order is used (example: Sensei Kano).
