What are peoples preferences, training out doors/more informal or training in an actual dojo. I'm now roughly 3 months into my Uechi Ryu journey, and thanks to the Rona and our governor having some of the strictest restrictions in the US, I've only trained out side. That being said its actually been pretty great. the only focus has been on training, no ranks/belts Gis. Just a couple of us getting together to work out. However, it will be nice to eventually get into the dojo and have a more traditional atmosphere. Side note, things are finally starting to click for me. While I still have a long way to go, I don't always feel like i have 2 left feet.
