In Front of the Dojo
Originally uploaded by lucasbv.
Officially we started having karate class at North Florida Aikikai the first week in January, 2006. Unofficially, we started sometime in December. For the first 3-4 classes it was just myself and a single student.
It was a wonderful feeling to be training in a dojo again instead of the garage! The NFA dojo was like a dream! There was so much room to move around and because it had such a high ceiling, I could even practice Bo again without fear of breaking the lights!
Gradually a few people started joining class and by the time of our first Special Training in April, we had about 8 people training with us.
