Re: Why do you operate a dojo?

At the time I started the Shudokan School of Aikido, circumstances were forcing me to leave the dojo I was in but I really was enjoying learning from our Shihan, Hiroshi Kato so I opened my own dojo so I could keep studying under him. I consider myself qualified only to get beginners started and after that, they are free to find a more experienced and qualified instructor locally.
Best wishes,
