Final Countdown to Dojo Opening

Tonight, after a parent meeting and regular karate classes, my upper level students and their parents all helped load our 1000 square feet of mats into trucks.  Then we caravanned across town to the new dojo, unload the mats, and did the Happy Dance.

We're committed now.  Class must follow the mats. :-)

There's a wee bit of construction left -- three doors to be installed, many mirrors to mount -- and the painting touchups that must follow.  And cleaning.  I started on some cleaning today, then realized the pointlessness of cleaning before the day of sawdust production and sanding.

Really, just having the mats in the space makes a huge difference, psychologically, for me.  Things no longer feel in limbo, so stress levels begin to fall.  And having the support of students and their families means as much to me as the support of my own teachers.

So.  Five days until the dojo opens its doors as an independent school.  Five days as we transition from little community school to fulltime dojo.

And y'know what was pretty cool?  I signed up two new students tonight!

Sometimes I simply can't believe I do what I do for a living.
