My Story – Hanshi Ellis
The Dojo is the place where only the Martial Art is taught and strictly translated; it implies the instruction of only the ‘true’ Japanese Martial Art. It is much more than just a gym or a club-hall; it is a cherished place of learning and fellowship, like a model family. The Hombu Dojo is a very special place for training in the Martial Art and is revered and respected by all students. Most Hombu Dojo’s carry memorabilia and the history of the Ryu; photo’s mounted and is the place where only the Chief Instructor of the Ryu teaches.
