the "Dungeon" dojo!

The dojo to many is a place of beauty, where the daily ritual of working out takes place. Do you have a special place where you work out? A special design you created that gave the dojo its personality and in the process gives you the inspiration to put a little more into your workout? Share your secrets here.

Tony L. and a couple of my students inaugurated my new "outdoor" private dojo early this morning. Tia and I took a short video that we thought you might enjoy...

Cool ! 8) Given Tia and the sound effects, maybe it could be called a "dances with wolves studio."

Right on a dance free zone! Randy would be pleased.

Looks good to me, snow and ice is not far way here.

Keep Tia handy George looks like skunk ape turf to me!

I'm sure your aware that skunk ape meat is a good dietary source of lean protein for aging pit bulls! :wink:

BTW can I have access to the hideaway?

Very nice George and I am glad that everyone is finding the humor in the dance studio piece afterall.

That looks like a wonderful place to train.

I am starting to hear about the hideaway. Is there a special criteria that must be met? I would love to be part of it if I was welcomed in.

Although we now have a beautiful building in the heart of Mount Dora for a dojo, I still love to work out in the original "swamp" dojo. I give quite a few private lessons there as well.

[a "troll" posted some junk on this thread, bringing it to my attention - thought some of you "new guys" might enjoy it.
