Re: Starting a new Dojo

does anyone know of a Shodan starting up a dojo. Is this disrespectful in any way?
I open the doors on my new class in a new location tonight. Whilst this is a new venture being mostly taught by me, the class retains a direct link with my original dojo (where I still teach the kids weekly and a monthly senior slot), and students will be encouraged to participate in all classes.

I don`t think there is anything disrespectful in this, in fact we have been "pushed" into it by our chief instructor (5th Dan) as a means of expanding the club and giving the dan grades more opportunity to teach and develop.



A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
