What are some examples of "community" in the context of your dojo?
Does your dojo's "community" remain only on the mat? In the dojo? Outside of the dojo? Into the personal life arena?
Our Dojo tries to have monthly events, including joint practice with all classes (dubbed "drinking practice"), parties whenever an event calls for it (holiday, newyears etc), demonstrations of Aikido, and sometimes field trips ("aiki trips").
