My traditional Sensei claims one's Dojo is the place where one takes one's stance.
How does this affect the ADA??

Maybe a few more details to explain the question would make it easier to answer. For instance, what is the ADA?

My apology: The ADA is the Americans with Disabilities Act.
I program for my Dojos, so forgive me.
I was trying to assimilate my Sensei's direction with two potential amputee students, was having difficulty solving for Direction.

Thank you.

I'll be honest; I have no idea what your Sensei means by that statement, so I'm also not sure how it would apply to the ADA. I mean, you use stances throughout karate, regardless of where you practice it or use it. Someone in a wheelchair, for instance, would have a "stance," but it would be the stance of their wheelchair, rather than their legs. And are we actually talking about "stances" or are we talking about "postures," or about more generally moving bodyweight?

I think what he was saying was with regard to traditional instruction pertaining to "Return to your Dojo" (post protect self), take your Dojo with you wherever you go.
In other words always be ready to defend yourself or others.
I was just grappling with Chinese translations of the words place, stance, and disabilities.

Thanks..
