New poll

Hi everyone,

I am trying to decide about a possible relocation of my dojo and have put together an anonymous poll (there is a dialogue box if you want to leave me a message or email address for a respone). This poll is not for any potential students, but for existing aikido practioners at other dojos, and addresses questions such as location and demographics. It also includes a bunch of other questions that you can answer if you wish, or leave blank. I'll share the results with the various forums once I have enough responses.

The poll can be found at: Poll

Thank you all for your time. If you have any suggestions for additional questions, please let me know. Again, this is anonymous unless you choose to leave me a comment on the form.

best, Rachel

Just updating that the poll has had 29 responses so far. When I get enough responses to have what I consider a viable poll, I'll share the results here and on the other forums that I posted this poll on.

Thanks to everyone for their efforts!
