I'm in Bloomington, Indiana just now with a bunch of folks in a dojo in the woods overlooking Lake Lemon. Ain't it great!!!
Actually, I agree with what you said above. I must not be communicating clearly because I don't consider music and budo that different as you suggest.
By the way, we have dojo in Texas, but the Jiyushinkan is in Tempe, Arizona just down the street from ASU campus.
