How people started club/dojo?
I would be interested in finding out how different senseis of varying stature started their club or dojo. Did you start through a health club? University club? rent a space? How did you get students if you were new to an area and didn't have a base?
I would like to start either a club or a small dojo outside of my immediate area and would like to hear about other peoples experience. BTW, I started aikido in 1981-82, and have been training consistantly throughout this time (minus a two year gap for maternity).
Thanks for your help!
