The beginners course is a good idea as well. You might also consider getting on the college staff, teaching an extension class, or starting a satellite club at the colleges to draw students from. If you have several yudansha, this is a way for them to get their feet wet teaching. You'll get a lot of people passing through but some will stick-it's a numbers game. Location can be important but if the rent is so high for high traffic visibility then you go out of business if it does not bring in the needed students. Good luck.
