Dude.. I buy that many flavors of sticks I may have to charge these guys out the
Or just make them buy all their own gear.
With respect to the tire dummies.. the plans I have for the stacked tires on stands can
be made with rollers.. so those can be moved into and out of position. I will
probably hang up those double-tire rigs too as Ryno suggested. Maybe
coat them with polyurethane so they don't get road soot on the gear...
That will be nice.. I never really had a practice space with a ceiling I could suspend
major stuff from.
With respect to the sticks thing... my background is all just rattan and we have
the cheapo padded ones
for the "first month if they are squeamish". I've let the newbs use rattan and I use
this on them for some largo sparring..
I guess I need to think about something between the karatedepot style foam
and the rattan...
I will post a pic of the space.. I'm still bursting into evil villain laughs from time
to time thinking about it...let's talk about why fat-fu shall we?

Some pics of the space. Very rough... but with some hard work I think it will be
a very cool area to train...

On Man, you remind me of my own first store front!
focus mitts and a solid heavy canvas hanging bag, make everyone buy some good gloves. Bag work empty hand and with stick saves money compaired to sticks wearing out.
big thick staves for hitting on to develope power, they last longer. Cut staves down into sticks, they end up much thicker. Thats we have to do in EBMAS or we just shatter those 1 inch sticks.
some kind of lockers or even just selves or cubbys to let people leave a few things. Sometimes people are willing to share gear and just leave it at the gym.
Mirrors break. But some kind of short shelf or decorations along the base to subconciously remind people of the edge. I have seen walls mirrors get shattered. even a stripe of painted trim will help.
I have run a store front operation in the past, PM me if you have any questions.
o ya, review your gym here at dojoreviews and link it to your username.
