Re: Dojo Costs

Rule from business - the success of your venture is often directly proportional to the amount of funds you allocate to the start-up. If that rule holds true for a dojo (it did for all of mine), it makes more sense to save money by starting small and relying on low-overhead locations until you can save enough funds to have a grand facility. On the other hand, if all you want is to continue practicing Aikido, then the financial and growth objectives are moot so you can stay with the low overhead operation.
