Oh, well. It seems to me that the gentleman in question missed out on what perhaps could have become a lifetime of enjoyment. Whether it was based on strong religious beliefs, bad knees, or the same American aversion to bowing that I used to suffer, he left the dojo and probably won't return. Based on the concern expressed and his other postings, I'm guessing that Riggs Sensei would have found an accomodation for any sincerely held beliefs.
