that darn dojo

this dojo has yet to contact me. I'm really annoyed. Their website is really uninformative. they don't even have a telephone number on there. So I email them and signed their guestbook and now I have to sit on my hands and wait......... ugh...

ouch... i'm so cool it hurts.

Try showing up at random times that are likely class times. That is, Thursday at 7:00 is a time when almost every dojo in the world seems to be holding class. Some start at 6:00 others at 6:30 or even 7:00, but at 7:00 PM someone will be there. Saturday at 11:00 is another good time to 'drop by.'

Yours in Aiki

IMHO, where there is no contact, simply let it go and move on.

Until again,

well, i guess you're right. I just really wanted to start training in Aikido. I'll have to wait until I go home in December, but then that only allows me to train for like a month and a quarter.

ouch... i'm so cool it hurts.
