Not that I'm in any place (ability nor ambition!) to do this, but I wanted to solicit information from those who have started up their own dojo (or helped out in setting one up) to see what sort of issues and solutions you ran up against in doing so.
What were some of the hurdles you had to clear in order to set up your dojo? How did you resolve those issues?
If you had advice to those who wished to start up a dojo, what would they be?
If you could do things differently, what would you have done?
Any other stories, anecdotes, or experiences that you had in starting up a dojo would be greatly appreciated!
I may collect your responses and put them into the AikiWiki
. Please let me know if you don't want your information to be placed there...
