1) Accept your current dojo may be less martial than you'd like and just maintain your own standards (a must anyway, be your own best critic)
Hey Ian,

I wasn't talking about my own dojo. I'm speaking abotu the aikido world in general. I've traveled to many dojos and seminars, and I see this everywhere I go. Sensei Furuya makes some very good points about beginners. But these are things I see amongst Shodans and above. I may take your advice and become a Sensei one day, but that still doesn't stop me from wanting to see aikido maintain some of its integrity through proper training.
