This is the beginning of our first full month teaching at a new, and might I add, awesome location. Sensei has been teaching at a local community center for many years and I have been teaching on football fields, under gazebos, out of my garage and everywhere in between since about 2007. To say I'm excited to start this next chapter would be an understatement.
While I am admittedly excited, I also have experienced a bit of trepidation. I don't like asking for money, but to advance our training to its full potential an indoor, martial arts oriented facility is what we need. So money is a necessity. Our plan is to use all proceeds for the betterment of our students and dojo. We plan to have scholarship options available, put money into equipment, and use proceeds to help cover the costs of special training trips.
