Hi Cito! I started few yrs back around yr 2000 i think...but i stopped unfortunately for some busy work at school... And i decided to come back to the mat earlier this year ... =)
Both dojos are very good. I mentioned above that the new dojo though has modified techniques and involvement of instructors are also good... honest way of saying it, the new dojo makes the practices jst little more personalized to whatever level you are in.
I am not saying I don't have fun with the first dojo -- I owe it to them my first techniques...and I still pay respect to all my dojo-mates especially my Senseis. =)
Hope I can transition smoothly soon.
Thanks all for your inputs.
