I don' t know about all that...

I am attending Karl Geis's dojo and we study the Tomiki style Aikido. I'll admit that there was little etiquette in the form of bowing or stooping down to the Instructor, that isn't where the respect is needed most. The the place where respect is needed most is in on the mat while learning from your master and teachers. As for scoring points my dojo doesn't practice for points. We do have randori but it is a small part of what we do. We have no interest in competition for Aikido. To learn more about Tomiki style you could visit if you want to.
