Which this dovetails into my topic nicely - What I don't like to see in a dojo.
I hate coming to the dojo when it is supposed to be open and seeing three people standing around out front talking. When in the dojo I do not like to see people milling waiting for practice to begin.
I am a firm believer that when you get to the dojo the training starts. Take care in putting on your uniform - it is your Zen robes after all.
Be in the moment - and clean your training space. Do you know where the "witches broom" comes from? In witchcraft before a ceremony they ritually clean the space with a broom. In the ritual of martial practice we too should spend time cleaning, bring chaos into order.
Once on the mat - nothing to do? Stretch, do kata, practice some roles. See someone standing around? Grab them and start going through something. The good lord grants us precious few hours to train. Don't waste them away waiting for something to do. Training is in the here and now! Get to work!
Anything you don't like to see? Like I said, I hate seeing idleness - whether in the dojo or on the online version! I would love to hear your thoughts.
