Re: Please help us in saving our dojo!
I'm really sorry to read that!
Some years ago I remember there was a lead article in DER SPIEGEL on conservation of historical substance in Germany, and the essence of the article was that investment in new construction projects (= demolition of historical buildings) after the second world war led to more destruction than all bombs of WWII together. So there's a new contribution to destruction by the city of Esslingen :-(
Wish you all the best for finding an equally beautiful dojo!
