Hi David,

Yep, you're pretty much correct with what I would consider an 'independent' dojo certainly as far as the UK goes. In fact most of the Associations in the UK are independents - they have no links back to their respective styles hombu dojo, there are I think only 4 or 5 out of over 30 that I can think of as having direct links back to their styles hombu dojo.

FYI, the Association I belong to are independent and we're about the third largest in the UK at present with around 600 - 700 students.

Best Regards,
