Well, after months of farting about, bartering over costs, chasing legal fools and town planners etc, we have our new dojo!
So, where now? Quite simple – we get the place cleaned up and get training…
Phase One is to build the dividing walls, remove all the crap and basically make it useable. Install alarm and fix lighting, fill and paint any holes/cracks in the floor, put up temporary kamiza – and continue the Heijoshin tradition of kicking the crap out of each other.
When we start the build, I shall post again – probably with photos of inept DIY and drunken keiko afterwards.
