I have never been there but, I am wondering if you had talked to anyone before you went about what to expect and what were your expectations before you went?
Yes I did in fact. My sensei's daughter (they're a complete Japanese family) told me several things to expect but that they varied widely from instructor to instructor. Endo and Miyamato's classes came highly recommended but my schedule didn't permit.
I can see the other posts asking me the same thing on what my expectations were :P so I'll answer that in my next post!
