The assistant judo teacher is the master teacher (Sensei) right hand person. He or she is there to assist the teacher with the conduct of the class. The assistant teacher may present all facets of judo instruction he or she is qualified to instruct. The randori session requires the immediate supervision of the master teacher (Sensei).
