Re: How long to get the feel of a new dojo

All good suggestions. Walter's point about a dojo not allowing you to watch a class is spot on. If they seem unwelcoming to visitors, or actively discourage people from checking out other dojos in the area, or even have an oddly high mat fee for visitors, it's a big red flag.

Take your time, explore your options, and you'll find the right place.
