Re: Poll: Which of the following do you think your dojo most emphasizes?

My vote on aesthetic reflects a place to begin: with space and beauty. That makes the dojo a place of refuge. You need room to work on yourself; the dojo is not a gym. The space and the beauty serve as reminders. It also helps to have a church and a funeral home across the street like I do, although a cemetary would have a better effect. In gassho
