Re: My thoughts about my dojo/sensei
Do you hear yourself? If you like this instructor then go train with him. Train with anyone, regardless of rank, as long as you can learn from them. He may only be a 2nd Dan but he has enthusiasm! You could switch school to a 5th or a 9th Dan and he could be a total jerk, or not have that same passion. This is your first lesson grasshopper, Aikido is about movement of energy. Where does your energy move you? Go there!
