Re: Please help us in saving our dojo!

Dear Sonja
So sorry to see that you lost your beautful dojo - it may not all be bad.

Some years back I had a very good dojo - 30/40 adults and about 40 kids. The facility employed a new manager who turned the place upside down - we were a casualty and had to leave.
My students spent money in the bar after training, so they did rather well out of us.
A month later the `new super manager ` stole 48,000 - emptied the bar slot machines and took all the champagne and spirits from the celler.

We received a call from the manager of another centre offering us a much better hall and we have been there until last November when we moved to a newly built facility.
Have faith.
