Re: Poll: How active are you in your aikido dojo's community?
For my (South Florida) dojo beer following class has been a staple, and Sensei leads by example!
At the University branch the students have less time and do not socialize after class, but the annual 'jello wrestling party' at one's house was a smashing success.
I personally have a flair for - irritating the hell out of - everyone I know. So, my aiki has been learning social appropriateness. I'm invited to Sunday's party, so I will don my best party dress, and be a very good, and mostly sober boy (kidding about the dress).
