Welcome from Nashville, Tn

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.

That is easy - the good ones offer beer and liquor before classes to reduce students' fear. And afterwards they offer bandages and special medicine for bruises and worse things

Don't worry, as long as you have fun, nothing is wrong. Maybe if you are planning to grade for shodan, you should think about it again.

If you don't have fun, you have to reflect, if it's you or the dojo.

Proper etiquette and some Japanese words are usually part of the DO, but even some Christian churches are not preaching in Latin any longer - yes some still have some Latin rites, songs, etc. - - Sorry that would be another thread.

Regards Dirk
