Shuhari indicates the student's progression from simple obedience through to mastery. The definition quoted on the wikipedia page lists the progression as "Shu" - obedience -> "Ha" - digression -> "ri" Separation. Martin Fowler defines the term slightly differently, emphasizing the source of the student's learning (from a single master to multiple masters and experimentation ultimately to full experimentation and self-examination). Ron Fox has an extended essay which explains the term more fully.
