Re: Poll: Should religion play a part in an aikido curriculum?

I don't think religion should be taught and graded at the dojo (as Daniel said) so if there was a third choice of "Really NO!" I would've picked that one.

One thought...we've got all these hand techniques, then we've got all these weapons and techniques within them. There's really not enough time in a lifetime to learn those...where would you have time to train in religion, too, without watering everything else down? We only have a finite time at the dojo every week...go elsewhere for something else.

Is there a dojo out there that only teaches shihonage? I'd train there. One life...one thing.

My few yen,

--Michael
