Deciding to Leave

If you decide to drop out of aikido for any reason, please tell us. We are sincerely interested in making your aikido experience a positive one. It may be that your personal needs can best be fulfilled elsewhere at this time. We will honor your leaving just as we honored your arrival. We have been training in aikido for a long time, and have dealt with a multitude of processes within ourselves and others. We would like to understand your experience and to learn from it. By communicating with us, you provide us with valuable feedback and give us the opportunity to improve ourselves.
