Same Thing, Different Day...

It seems as if the only answer I can give to the "What are you up to?" question is, "Still working on the dojo."  I suspect that'll be the case for the next couple weeks, even though classes will start in there on Monday.

To run a community school, all you need is an agreement to rent a small space for small blocks of time, a cell phone, and file box.  Everything else--supplies, focus pads, whatever--is brought in on an as-needed basis.  But setting up an independent dojo is quite another matter.

First come the big things: building out the space and painting it all, then installing flooring, mats, mirrors, and signs.  Then the smaller pieces: decor, furniture, inventory, and tools of the trade such as kicking/punching pads, padded weapons, and the like.  And the paper.  All the paper!  Tracking logs, certificates of achievement, schedules, instructions, information.  Marketing materials and outlines.  Teaching decisions and lesson plans.  Newsletters.

And now we've reached the stage of total cleanup--which will be my life for the next two days.
