Re: Proper Japanese term for "Dojo Founder"

Why not simply use the term ` Dojo Founder ` it would be clear for all to see and understand.
I trained in the 1950s at the famous ` Hut Dojo ` it was the very first Aikido Dojo in the UK - It is still revered to this day because of all the Japanese and English teachers that taught there.
I believe the Japanese for ` Hut ` is Yamagoya ? - To say I trained at the ` Yamagoya Dojo ` in the 1950s does not have the same old charm as ` The Hut Dojo `.
