Re: Sempai/Kohai Relationship in Aikido

A dojo is built on relationships. They are nothing without the people. A building or gym is not a dojo. It is the people and the relationships among them. If you wish to just practice aikido without the sempai/kohai relationship, then all you have is a club, not a dojo.
Thank you, that is so well said.
