Something I take for granted, but shouldn’t:
The students are friendly towards each other. They treat each other with respect. They treat me with respect as well. I may make silly jokes, I may teach a technique incorrectly (and be politely corrected), but we’re all learning in a safe, non-competitive, relaxed environment, and for that, I am very, very grateful.
The dojo is filled with people who want to learn, who want to improve themselves, and help others. If only the rest of the world were filled with people like this. One person at a time, one person at a time.
