See, I'm thinking that this way you could defeat anyone because as soon as they look they'd be blinded from terminal color clash.

Oi... what a waste of $1,000. I'll ask Joe down at the flea market to give ya 100 belts of any colour you want for that amount of moonies. And instantly too... no need no 1 year grace period.

Re: Creating a McDojo

Advertise a $300 8-week program in which you would make everyone a black belt in Aikido in that amount of time, LOL! I got that from Napoleon Dynamite (if anyone's seen that movie...it's amazing!) in the scene where him and his brother go to this "McDojo" place called Rex Kwon Do! LOLOL!!!! I love that movie!

Re: Creating a McDojo

The market is growing. There is a new dojo, next to yours; Dojo King
and if you order an Irimi XXL menü, you get free seminar tickets and an O'Sensei poster...

Re: Creating a McDojo

I can help you out by teaching at your dojo. I am a soke 16th dan who learned Shaolin Aikido from Grandmaster Wynn. Let's start by advertising a 6 month program with a free uniform. People can pay to be part of our association and then they can practice at any Shaolin Ninja Tiger School in the world (and there are three by the way). We'll put lots of trophies in the windows, and hold competitions to attract customers, er...i mean students. People will be so interested to learn our style because unlike other Aikido schools, the Shaolin Ninja Tiger School also teaches boxing, greek roman wrestling, black AND white ninja tactics, and basket weaving. ( I do also hold a black belt in all those arts in addition to seven others by the way). Be sure to put an ad in the phone book and newspapers with a family all dressed in gi's smiling and doing ninja poses. Please consider me for the postition. I forgot to mention that I was a member of Seal Team Six, a former Green Beret, Army Ranger and Captain of the SWAT team.

Sincerely,
Johnny Matsu
Quiet as a ninja and smooth as sushi.

Re: Creating a McDojo

Wanna make some quick monies? Sell autographed pictures of Jesus Christ in a hakama. Have it signed,"Dear Mori, Thanks for the refresher! Keep working on that garden! Love, J.C."

It's sure to be a best seller on e-bay.


(*PS: True Story - My mother met a man in real life (years ago) at a flea market who really was selling "autographed" pictures of Christ. Sad thing was... people were really buying them. *)

Re: Creating a McDojo

Online aikido classes or how about an aikido home kit? Can be done from the comfort of your own home. Guaranteed black belt or your money back. We will even throw in an ukemi-cruncher to work those abs. Wait there's more! A set of bokken steak knives!!! And for those who order in the next five minutes you will get a complementary hakama apron and a CD of Steven Seagal's greatest hits!!!!

I had one student who had not trained in almost a year due to an injury ask me seriously if he could tripple grade becuase he went through all the techniques in his head.

Better yet, you could enroll them in a two week course to teach them how to play the songs themselves!

Oh, Karen. That's just not right. You've taken it too far.

Okay, it's really funny.

Re: Creating a McDojo

Okay, My name is Debra and my husband is the one in Aikido, I tried but it just wasn't for me, however Plaid and Tye Dye is most definately my style! Can I have one without the Class? Walt in R.I., you are a BAAAAAD Boy. As for my husbands request for the pinup calender, I'll paddle his bum later.
