We moved from our old location on Monroe Ave to 107 Norris Drive. We are actually still very close, only about a mile or so away from the old dojo. This new location is right by Cobbs Hill Park. Now that the weather is getting better, you can count on some pretty sweet outdoor training sessions!
The place we are in now used to be an embroidery shop. They had these giant industrial sized sewing machines in there. It was somewhat difficult to picture it as a dojo.
Since moving in we've given the walls and the floors a new paint job. Our mirrors were hung, along with a white board for training notes. We spruced up the changing rooms, matted the training floor, and hung up our punching bags. We also added a pull up bar to our bag hanging apparatus.
Future improvements: we will be adding to our mat space, providing additional pull up bars, adding a markiwara area, and giving some TLC to the outside of our facility. We also want to make some sweet wooden screens and create a beautiful kamiza.
