Looking good. The big dojo looks like a huge undertaking. Good progress.

I like the little pond in front of the old dojo, do you ever jump in after a hot day of training?

Hello Schanne:

I regret the 26th meeting was one of many things that slipped through my fingers.... I regret it.

<<In the mean time my wife is junking it up

My genuine condolences... mine strangely (such as it is) now possesses a hula hoop within it? I suppose I could pretend she was practicing the Hawaiian art of Lua Or I could study the undulatory quality karate should possess???

Anybody else have home dojo construction ideas, photos?

just surfing...

Re: plywood floor supported by tires...Shotokan in Garden Grove, California has this. It IS a little wierd w/ the springy feeling & the floor isn't level - it dips. It's shiney because of all the lacquer & that causes the floor to inhibit sliding = lots of blisters.

I trained there for a month & didn't like it. I think you can see it on their website.

I 'm having a concrete slab poured for one in less than a week , for myself and family to train. Nothing fancy 24 ft x 24ft . 8 ft walls with a vaulted ceiling so we have plenty of room, plans are to have one wall with mirrors, one 100 lb bag, and plan on epoxy painting the floor gray. Plan on a few traditional decorations and plenty of room for our rank certifications and trophy's....

That sounds really great. I thought about doing the same but ended up in my basement instead. My space works out fine but I had alot of neat ideas for one similar to what you are talking about. Good luck Take pictures.
