Sounds like you are happy with your training, the people you train with and the culture your dojo has cultivated. Awesome. Really.
That's pretty much all any of us are after.
Different people are after different things just as different people learn through different methods. Some people snowboard and some sick-backward-bottom-dwellers ski, it's all good.
(And just to be PERFECTLY clear, I mean my first paragraph whole heartedly, please don't put any sarcasm into it where none is intended. My jab at skiers is completely a joke, my daughters ski and I love them anyway...)
