Re: Aikido Gets Kicked Out

I just heard from a friend that is one of the instructors there that they may have found a solution to keep them in the dojo. :-)

Re: Aikido Gets Kicked Out

An old sensei of mine was a builder and had lots of builder friends and they were raisig money to build a dojo (not sure what happened in the end). Ultimately that is the ideal solution - own your own place!

Re: Aikido Gets Kicked Out

You can't realistically make money out of aikido. So do the reverse: make a lot of money and then put up your own dojo.

Re: Aikido Gets Kicked Out

Speaking about aikido not being a money maker, when the senseis were talking after a demo and explaining about them being not in it for the money, one of them quoted, "To make a little fortune, take a big fortune and open an aikido dojo"

You'd be surprised at how much aikido philosophy you can pick up on at the end of the party when there's just a couple drunk sempai and you.

Re: Aikido Gets Kicked Out

This is really sad.

But who know perhaps they'd find a better place?
