You know your in a small Aiki Dojo when...
*the peanut gallery's guest has to move so you may wait to be recognized and allowed on The mat when late.
*part of any tenkan technique requires you to look behind and around before the throw, oblivious to uke.
*the Master finds the office 'Occupied' and grabs some air-freshener
You know your in a small Dojo when
*sparring, the corner judges are in the corners of the room and you know the Ring Master had an Italian sub before class.
*new students, after learning how/when and where to bow also learn that the first student gets to wear The Gi Top, second gets The Gi pant and last must wash them at home.
*the yellow pages charge per letter and that is how the school was named "The Doj"
*the 16 oz gloves leave a lasting stench on your hands that only Acetone can remove
