I think a tough teacher is a great thing as long as it is done with good intentions. There is no gray area you know when you've screwed the pooch and the high you get when praise is expressed is wonderful. I hope he doesn't go to soft on his tree side manner. My experience and feelings are that more than a few teachers today really don't tell you the way it is. Being afraid that they will piss off and lose a paying customer.His "treeside manner" has gotten softer the longer he has been away from Japan , but excellence is the expectation.
