Re: New dojo/new student
I remember when i started a new dojo in a different style.
Lots of fun and very exciting. i think that i would be use ful to find out what your new students think aikido is. they may have checked some website and seen alot of different representations.
I think when i started aikido one thing that i really enjoyed learning was the basic breakfall, and then using that break fall to come out of a technique safely.
I think you are going to have a great workout yourself being uke for all your new students
