For those who expressed it, I do understand the feeling of terrible discouragement but having said that, I would never cancel a class. I don't have that problem in my dojo now but I have been in churches where the hope was high and only a few showed up. It does feel terrible but you always go on, even for the few. As far as aikido goes, if one shows up, we train, if no one shows up, I would train with the bokken or jo for the hour. I could work on the thousand cuts a day my shihan said we should do!
