Re: Please help me find a dojo in Melbourne!
I've noted that there is quite a bit of tension in this discussion. I don't know why. I read that osensei stated:
"The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace...... foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all you encounter."
I don't mean to sound sanctimonious, however, the time we spent arguing here could have been spent training.
I hear that there is a sensei named David Brown in Melbourne. I am told he is quite experienced and has a lot to offer. I also hear that he is affiliated with the Aikikai. As to the hakama issue, I can't say.
Good fortunes to you Todd.
