Re: How to Leave a Dojo?

Criminy! Number one, times are hard and anybody who doesn't know it/hasn't been touched by it is living on another planet from the rest of us, so it's not like you've got a character defect. Second, if you feel accepted as part of the dojo community, what's wrong with sharing the fact of economic hardship - nobody's going to be asking you to fill in a form with the details.
Third, if you feel accepted as part of the dojo community, why wouldn't you just talk to the instructor?
I suspect the answers to my second and third questions have to do with embarrassment or other negative feelings you have about your situation - in which case I refer you back to my first point: it likely isn't you, "it's the economy, stupid" to quote somebody :-)
