Re: Seiza by ranks?

We do line up by rank, but not religiously, that is, it's more important that it happens without fuss than that everybody is exactly in their correct place. Dress code is usually observed at least, sweats left, hakamas right and everybody else in the middle. At our own seminars it's mostly just hakamas right and everybody else left.

During class people are free to line up whereever they want, but we have a heck of a time of convicing newbies to come out of their safe left corner sometimes.
