Nicknames for student in martial arts class?

Hi! I haven't posted here before, so here goes:

I have a teenage girl who is going to take some martial arts classes (kickboxing, karate, or the like) and I was wondering if there was either a suffix (like -chan, -san) or a way of addressing a student that the teacher (who will be Japanese) would use?

Also, when I took karate, back in the dark ages, we called the teacher 'sensei'. Is that still done?

Thanks so much!

EDIT: Thank you for all your help! :)
