Re: Should I Fold My Sensei's Hakama?

Voluntarily folding a hakama for someone you like and respect isn't such a big deal, now is it?
Its always been the norm in my albeit brief aikido training that the sensei's hakama is folded by a student...

The way i see it, the sensei (in most cases anyway) is not teaching you for money - he's sharing this knowledge he has spent decades accumulating; i am very thankful and very appreciative for that, and so i have no problem whatsoever with showing some respect to the man.
