What Makes a Great Dojo?

Here's a link to a (long) blog post about what makes a great dojo.

And here's a quote.
In a great dojo though, the teacher is more like a head student than a teacher standing above everyone at the head of the classroom dispensing the lesson.  These teachers are every bit as much students of the art they are teaching as the newest beginner.  They find a joy in polishing their own skills, and discovering new things about their art that is as strong and fierce as that of any student.
This is just one of the reasons we have a great dojo, but it's an important one.
