Re: Poll: Is regularly training at multiple aikido dojo beneficial to experienced aikido practitioners?

YES! There are so many implicit training conventions and agreements in each dojo that it behooves a person who is interested in genuine training to get out and taste how other folks teach/learn/do aikido.

When, say, four different styles of doing a turn or a roll are each presented as "the only safe way" you quickly learn that there is in fact no one way that fits all situations. You start to recognise the assumptions that you've ingrained as habit.

You also learn nifty stuff to bring back with you :-)
