So there are dojo's everywhere. Why is that your problem. If you've found a good place to train, Great. Having other paces around shouldn't affect you.

So what if there are black belts on every corner. What's it got to do with you?

And no, you being a nidan doesn't matter to anyone on this forum.

I have to agree with JohnL here.What difference does it make,really? Some people earn their rank and some don't. So what?

How about the Tiger's dojo on the corner? McDojo or not? I'm in OC too & a few years ago, I started a karate program for the city Recreation Dpt. but after a year w/ minimal sign-ups, I called it a day.
