By God's grace, we did pretty good for a start. After weeks of work and handing out packets and talking to people, I was able to sign up 41 people. These are those who paid for two months and came on the first day. The breakdown was 20 adults and 22 children. I have 3 more adults coming in this week and we will continue marketing and promotion until we reach our goal of 60 adults and 40 children. Class was hard to run with only two yudansha and all those beginners so I am thinking of how to adust the normal teaching methodology in order to help all the beginners be able to follow the techniques as shown.
Thanks for the words of support and for all of you who have privately emailed me.
