"Sensei Shane I believe respects his students, pays close attention to what their situations is and shows them a path on to achieve their goal no matter how out of reach it may seem. Not by just handing it to them. But by making them work hard, making them aware of what they are capable of and pushing them to fight to be the person they set out to be. Enforcing in each of them, that nothing is out of reach no matter what their circumstances is, no goal is unreachable."
