I think that it would be great if a struggling dojo could earn a little extra cash off of it's well-designed T-shirts in it's efforts, for example, to repair or replace its old mats.
But how to deal with the big commercial interests?
Maybe a seperate commercial section that would pay a monthly fee to be listed on aikiweb.
I think that it would be nice to be able to shop for aikido equipment and mats on aikiweb. Maybe the aikidoists could even rate and make comments about the products.
Aikiweb should probably post only quality products, and filter out scams, and unsafe and sub-standard items.
Such a concept should probably be well thought-out first.
Money is power. We can use that power to do more good in the world. And I think the world needs us.
