Hello,

My belief is that Aikido teachers should not tell their students how to behave or act outside the dojo. However, I believe that Aikido teachers are role models for their students and should be well aware of their own actions. If you expect your students to act in a courteous, professional manner befitting that of a martial artist, then as the teacher you should act the same.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe it was Ghandi who said you should be the change you want to see in the world.
