I stand corrected. I don't know what I could have been thinking. I'm terribly sorry if I even came close to angering you. Please don't hurt me.

You can't wear your belt in the shower, or the dye will run in your shoddily made product and render it useless.

As the soon to be owner of a UK McDojo franchise (as soon as i can get the deeds to my entire families houses and sell my kidney, just waiting to find a doctor of low ethics then its in the post Karen) I can categorically state that this is a gross mis-statement of the truth.

I would like to ensure any Brits who may be worried about the products supplied by the McDojo company, in light of the above comment, that the staff employed in our sweat shops......oooops, i mean youth employment schemes are of the highest quality.

Re: McDojo Fees

Two places near here (TKD, Kenpo, etc) charge $85 and $95 USD a month for about 8 classes (8 hours). The Aikido dojo here charges $45 a month for 12 classes (24 hours).
