Would you please tell me why you think you're a 9 on aliveness and a 10 on weapons?
Sensei is a high energy, charismatic instructor- he really believes in what he is doing and he does not go light or easy. If you are to block, than you had better block becuase otherwise you are going to get hit. Aliveness is that he believes that you should train like you fight and fight like you train- yes there is Kata which is traditional, but when it comes to Kumite or Bunkai- it is hard and it is fast.
