Re: What is the atmosphere in your dojo like?

The dojo manner is very relaxed (the formality is there, but inherent in the culture as much as the standard manners) and everyone is both smiling and focussed. The sensei is always visibly thinking how best to pair everyone up to get the most out of training, including the weird foreigner that just joined.
