Re: Is cleaning the dojo part of training?
If you take it out, put it back. If you eat it, replace it. If you get it dirty, clean it.
These are simple life lessons that we all should have learned when we are pre-teens.
It's simple etiquette that you clean up. In the army, It's overkill on the cleaning, but it does humble you, and it's a lesson that is worth the time you put into it.
