Re: The Dojo is a Stage

Great post.

There is charisma, there's the ability to make the audience or students focus completely on what is presented, forgetting everyday life and anything else outside the dojo or performance hall. And there's the ability to improvise and adapt, so that each performance becomes unique, and each participant feels touched directly and profoundly.
I have found these words to be quite in keeping with my own experience with my teachers.
