Re: Internet visible classes
Another use is as a marketing tool. A prospective student can check us out to see if Aikido is what they are interested in doing as well. As George pointed out there are some other options. I do occasionally conduct regional seminars, which if someone likes what I'm doing it might turn into something more as a fund raiser for bringing in my sensei. As noted, small dojos have to raise the funds to get shihans to come out. We don't even have a decent Japanese restaurant in the area.
