Just wandering aside from the buisness stuff, what rank do you need have your own DOJO, as far as I know a Sensai is 3rd dan and above so I'm guesing you can only have your own karate club if your a 3rd dan, if so how long does it take after you have reached first dan to get to 3rd dan?

Thanks for your replys.

Rank does not matter but honestly do not try it if you are not a black belt.

KickChick, interesting article, I guess he's trying to filter out the people who haven't got it to open their own dojo.

You could start it at any rank, but you would not get a good customer basis unless your a black belt. Or a brazilian jujitsu instructor

In my particular school one thing they do not want is anyone to start a school below the rank of black belt. It is not set in stone though so I think you could start one anytime if you liked.

I would say shodan, but then you can't really promote people to your level. No one will reach there shodan until you reach your next belt.

Shodan. At least ...
If you start as ahodan instructor you may teach, but you are not allowed to grade higher ranks: from 5 kyu up. This is the rule in our Feeration of Shotokan.
