Re: Poll: How necessary are organizations in aikido?

Y'all covered it.

I don't know that rank has inherent value other than to help us know where we fit in. The first time in my life I ever knew and was happy with 'my place' - meaning being told what was expected of me, and corrected if I was wrong, was in a dojo. If that sentence was unclear I'll supplement it - the first place I experienced social sanity was in a dojo.

So, if the organization Serves its members it is good.
