Learning techniques on the mat is one thing. Learning the discipline and respect is another. ShinKiKan members should always remember this.

These are the basics in Aikido: respect.
-We respect the dojo by showing up on time
-We repsect the dojo by paying the dues on time
-We respect the mat by taking our shoes off before getting on
-We respect the sensei by being on the mat at least 2 minutes before lessons begin
-We respect the sensei by bowing to him at the beginning and end of class
-We respect the sensei by giving him an honest attack, even if he fails to do the technique
-We respect fellow students by bowing to them each time we are about to practice
-We respect fellow students by bowing each time after practicing a particular technique and at the end of class
-We respect our fellow students by giving honest and sincere attacks according to their level
-We respect our fellow students, sensei and dojo by not talking in class

These are just a few basics, maybe I'll work on the list more later.
