Re: Beginners Retention Rates
That Ledyard dude, not only seems to really know this Aikido stuff, but he writes really well too. :-)
I was really worried about our Dojos retention rates, especially the students that I had uked for on their test, which then left after taking only their 5th kyu exam.... Then I read Sensei Ledyards article comparing the dojo to a tree, and while I understand it better, it still worries me.
Thank you Sensei Ledyard for your learned wisdom.
