    I'm toying with the idea of opening a dojo in the near future. I'm currently putting together a business plan, and part of it involves alot of research ! :D
    In your opinion what are the best Martial arts schools/Dojos in the world ?
    Any links ?

    I'm very curious to see layouts/themes/facilitie pictures etc.
    Cheers !

    Are you trying to emarrass the ninja guys?? :bang:

    you can open a dojo when you are a shidoshi ho with a shibu or a 5th dan, why cant you wait.

    Jon, don`t even think about this yet :bang: , just focus on your training, it`s going to be a fair few years before you should even consider opening a Dojo, your training is more important.

    In terms of successful business structure, GKR Karate International. They've made a fortune for Robert Sullivan, the Australian business man who came up with their organisation's structure. It's up to you whether that's a route you would want to follow...

    I've been at this for over 30 years.
    I don't think 'm good enough to declare myself a master.

    I'm so glad some people have that much confidence in their abilities. :D :D :D

    I think that basically in terms of TMAs at least, the best dojos are the ones which dont make any money. For a TMA dojo to make money it needs to lower standards to get more pupils in, then you become a McDojo and quite frankly we dont need anymore of them.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa guys...I didn't say anything about teaching Ninjutsu, did I ????. I said I might be interested in opening a dojo as business on the side with my instructor. Plus the fact that I'm receiving my black belt in Wu Shu Kwan very early next year, and need to complete a year of practical teaching
    before I'm eligible to train for my 2nd Dan.

    No need to jump to conclusions !
