Hi Bronson, and others who have helped with this. Please let me clarify this so that I don't tick off any of my Ann Arbor-land friends
I am hoping to have a club, or very small dojo outside of my hometown (A2) which would in no way conflict with my home dojo which I hope to keep training at (an absolutely terrific dojo I will add). It would be in the western Detroit suburbs or Brighton area and I wouldn't have anyone to start with, which is what makes it really scary to do.
So, the question of course is; how do you start something when you have no one who has any experience? It would be great if someone who had trained before and was no longer training (but interested in starting again) joined the club, but if that didn't happen, how do you go about building a base?
The ideas about the YMCA, other martial arts dojos and health clubs are great! Thank you to all who have contributed their experiences, I sincerely appreciate it.
