Re: Banned from the dojo

In my opinion and reading between the lines, this thread was started under false pretences in the pursuance of degrading the popularity of a certain organisation and or individuals, this seems to be purely vindictive.

So what are the outputs of EXCLUSION, simply in this context they are:

A course that is conducive to learning and not tit for tat.
Respect for the guest instructor and so that no one feels uncomfortable
Safety for the class
Emotions - based on the reaction that some students may behave erratically.


Those are my only thoughts on this matter, bar the fact that this thread is becoming a bickering match. If ego's were left out then the subject of EXCLUSION would be a fantastic topic particularly in where does ELITISM finishes and EXCLUSION begins!!!

How so Jay? No names were mentioned by the thread starter...

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.

Re: Banned from the dojo

You know the background to this as well as we all do Nick! All the names are clearly given in the profiles as well as the dojo names but that wasn't my point as I know you are aware. Enough said m8. Respect where respect is due.

Re: Banned from the dojo

There's only one real question that's come to my mind out of this thread, do you guys drink dog straight out of the bottle like all the namby southerners down here or do you still keep to the traditional half-pint glass (and please don't tell me your prefer larger)?

Re: Banned from the dojo

How does one gain the right to veto someone's attendance, what reason do they need to give, where does it all end?

Out of a half glass if its possible, then again, a mate of mine once asked a local barmaid for 'a bottle of brown' and was handed a bottle of blue wkd alcopop stuff...

'You know the background to this as well as we all do Nick! All the names are clearly given in the profiles as well as the dojo names but that wasn't my point as I know you are aware. Enough said m8. Respect where respect is due.'

Aye.

Personally I would say:

1) They need to be in charge or otherwise highly influential upon those that are.
2) They dont 'Need' to give any reason.
3) Who knows?

Re: Banned from the dojo

Hmmm. Elitism, a social hierarchy, top dog and alpha male. All terms I've heard and hold very dear to my heart

It would be very easy to think grade or rank makes you able to tell a person they are excluded from the dojo. But it takes more than 20 mins in front of a group of people to find out who you are and what you want from Aikido as I have found out.

Its easy for people to pick apart something you put on a forum like this. But at the end of the day its not what you say but the idea you have the right to say it that is important.

As for getting at someone, WHY would I wish to do this. I have all I need in my life on and off the mat and can only wish the same for everyone who has posted on this thread. Now I feel I should tell Nick off for last weeks class ( only kidding bud it was one of the best classes I've been to for a long time. Look out world here comes Sensei Simpson)
