Re: Music in the Dojo?

I attended a seminar with Chiba Sensei where he talked about how he had used disco music in a class once to try to get people to move/use their hips. I pretty sure he doesn't use it on a regular basis, but he certainly didn't seem adverse to using music.
Chiba Sensei?!?!?! I am shocked! When was this? Does anyone have a video of it?

I have trained in places where music comes through the walls from neighboring classes or restaurants, and have found it not too much of a distraction, but it doesn't add much, and I'd rather it weren't there.
