A sensei is a black belt 3rd Dan and up, or a teacher. These people are, after all, the ones that have been doing karate for years and have a good understanting of it's principals and meaning. They are the foundation for karate since without them, karate would not exist because it wouldn't be taught on to others, therefore karate would die quickly. These people make sure that karate stays strong and gets stronger with time.
