hi, i would like to say i been practicing kendo for 2 years, and the current dojo i am part of i feel they are not teaching me well, i have very little fellowship with the sensei and even the senpais. most of my kendo experience i learn the bulk of it on my own, i offten get scolded in my dojo due to etiquette that not one tells me about untill i get scolded, it makes me feel bad and foolish, the basics i learned on my own, no one in my dojo ever gets the chance to teach or explain waza, i had to learn them on my own, i admit i have very slight learning disability, and people in my dojo reluctantly do keiko with me, but they feel that am a hinderence to their training, i got scolded by one of the senpais saying am ruining the training of one of my practice partners when i am receiving kirikaeshi. i know am not one of the "strongest" kendoka in my dojo but am often feel like i am being treated like the black sheep, most of the people they are a bit passive agressive with me. i love kendo always have...but the current dojo i am is often making me think to quit kendo, but instead to give in to this i plan to move switch to another dojo in my local area, good thing i live in nyc they are plenty of kendo dojos around.
