Re: Poll: Should an aikido instructor date a student of theirs?
Thank you for taking the time to reply. I agree that once the status is permanent (or maybe established is a better word - I'm on my second marriage), everyone is much more comfortable. My concern is the "predatory" teacher. I've seen it in dojos, businesses, and other arenas. The result is always catastrophic...at least initially.
We are also totally in agreement that the perfect world doesn't exist - and it probably wouldn't be much fun anyway.
