Re: Ask not, what your dojo can do for you..

With our local dojo, we have the instructor who is the dojo-cho (unpaid, teaches for the love of the art)
and we pay fees for the space we share with a Tae Kwon Do studio.
The aikido club maintains and cleans the mats. A couple of us sweep and mop the dressing room and bathroom on occasion.
Working there is not a big strain, and it helps the group. Hopefully we will raise extra money for more mats, and stuff like that.
It seems that we are kind of an extended family... each gives, all benefit.

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
