Is bowing to your Sensei in Martial Arts allowed?
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.

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?
