    My friend's school has been slowly, but surely forward. It's a small town, and we have about 25 regulars. So far I've been able to design:

    A Six-Sided Makiwara: Deisgned so that a student can condition knuckles, palm, ridge, shin, and instep from the initial position.

    Grappling Dummy - Weighs about 93 lbs, and made from army clothing (tough material).

    Next project - The Striking Dummy

    If anything you make becomes successful than consider expanding.
    Thank you so much. We've already started doing the setup for the dojo.
    About 3/4 of the entire area is for students, training equipment, and a small store front for sparring gear. The other quarter section is a small wood shop like area for me to design training and conditioning devices. It has been working out well so far. Wish me luck!

    Opening a School / Opening a MA Store?

    About a week ago, I received a call from a friend that trained with me a long time ago. He told me about his progress: Getting his blackbelt, trophies from various tournaments, and certification to teach. After receiving quite a bit of funding, he wants me to be deeply involved in starting a dojo. Personally, I wouldn't mind doing it, but my real passion is in developing training tools [Llike "Q" from James Bond films], and hopefully I want to open a store. What should I do? Any Suggestions?
