Training in karate under/by Shihan Jason Tan on Thursdays at 8pm at Kei Shin Kan gymnasium.

Should it be 'under' or 'by'?

Many thanks.

    I prefer "by" because "under" is often used in "under the tuition of" or a similar phrase. However, it doesn't matter much.

    Under = Under the supervision of (the trainer is only watching, supervising and monitoring performance of the trainee at a distance)

    By = Standing by the trainee (the trainer is following the trainee closely and requires a direct mirroring and mimicry of each and every step)

    Obviously, "under" is a far better method. Nevertheless, "by" training is often required.
