For the time being, we are going ahead with classes in January as normal. He wouldn't want us to stop. Those of us who are instructors will have to sit down with Tiffany, though, and figure out where to go from there. I don't think anyone wants the dojo to close, but we may have to downsize to a smaller/cheaper space at some point. It's hard to keep such a large dojo going with only part-time instructors.

My sincere condolences to you, Noah, Poage senseiís family, friends, and students.

It sounds like you have a dedicated and highly competent group of instructors, and very good students. While things are completely up in the air right now, Iím sure once the dust settles everything will be fine with the dojo. Itíll never be the same, but that doesnít mean itíll stop being a great place.

OSU!

My heartfelt condolences to you and your sensei's family, Noah. Carry on, I would imagine that this is what he would want you to do.

OSU!
