Thread: Check out this perfectly-decorated Swedish dojo

    Check out this perfectly-decorated Swedish dojo

    How can any school afford to decorate a dojo like this?http://www.takemusuaiki.se/english/index.html

    Thumbs up

    Neat and orderly.
    A well decorated dojo may not represent a traditional,good dojo at all but this seems to be legit.

    Guess they use the tradition of students cleaning the instructors house thing.

    It looks like whoever it belongs to probably lives there as well.

    well who wouldn't want a school that looked like that?

    if I could afford it I sure as heck would have a sweet azz place
    to train.

    they do look legit and not a mcdojo so why knock 'em for
    the sweet digs.

    that guy who's been in the Discovery and TLC shows about
    martial arts has a sweet dojo. you know, the big asian guy
    with glasses that does aikido. he lives there as well I think.

    kinda funny about the 'student cleaning the teacher's house'
    bit. I was at the jujitsu class I just started last night and one
    of the kids from the karate class before got out all the cleaning
    supplies and started dusting and stuff. I'll be curious to find out
    if he was short on cash this month or it's a punishment thing
    or exactly what.

    This shihan who owns the place just added on and has about
    6000 sf I think. 2 separate decks, weight training area, 2 private
    rooms and a jacuzzi for those post work out soaks !! Pretty nice.

    Wow, imagine that. Someone who actually takes so much pride in their dojo they want it to look traditional and nice, with a touch of western decoration thrown in for good measure.

    Too bad the mcdojos that make up the bulk of American martial arts studios don't feel the same way....

    Oso, actually in most schools I have been in students tend to pitch in to do construction repair type stuff, cleaning etc...

    who's knocking them?

    I'd love to have a school that looked like that.

    Here's an idea for a new show instead of "Trading Spaces" how about "Trading Dojos"?

    The crap that many schools do is not the crap I was taught or train in or teach.

    Dam nit... it made sense when it was running through my head.
