Is Bowing to Your Sensei in Martial Arts Allowed?

Bowing to Your Sensei in Martial Arts

Question: 

Is bowing to your Sensei in Martial Arts allowed?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, we praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Bowing and bending down as a form of greeting in martial arts to your Sensei is a form of showing respect.

Although, we know in Islam we are not supposed to bow in front of anyone save Allah.

How do we understand this and what should a Muslim do in this scenario?
