I'll reach shodan but it's not my goal. Therefore, I'm quite sure I wont be dropping out after reaching it. Besides, once you make Aikido a part of your life, how can you drop out? (well, I guess you could die)

So my goal is not to train for my next belt, but to practice each and every class with an open mind, open heart, and with full intention.

So how about this question that I'm sure is easily answered by y'all...

What percentage of the people in your dojo, yudansha or not, are making Aikido a part of themselves rather than just being serious 'students'?

This is open to interpretation of course.
