We're in the new dojo

Today we moved out of the old dojo into the new dojo. Here are some things to understand to make the most of the new site:
  • This is a private residence – not a business. Treat my home with respect and help take care of the dojo.
  • Because this is not a business you will pay no fees or dues to us. If you want to help offset the cost of utilities and maintenance, put a tip in the tip jar. ($30 per student per month would help a lot.)
  • Do not park on the street and do not block the ramp at the front of the house.
  • There are no dressing areas, so come dressed and ready.
  • Shoes, sandals, or flipflops are part of your uniform. They help keep dirt outside the dojo.
  • The toilet is in the house up the stairs to the left.
  • Every student and instructor will help clean up after each class before he or she goes home.

While we are completing construction and clean-up the following rules are in effect:

  • If you see a nail or tack or piece of wood on the floor, pick it up and throw it away.
  • Classes are likely to be shoe-wearing, no-groundwork, no-falling classes for the first week or two.
  • Take more dirt home with you than you bring into the dojo.
