    I seriously would not have any problem whatsoever with having to pay 60-100 dollars per month to be able to train with a sensei like you Coach Tripp.
    Ignatzami +rep in bound for the generous offer.

    I will admit, I only do it in the hope that if I ever get to come to one of Mr. Tripp's seminars he will show me how to play big guy Judo. All my instructors are little guys.

    Also, Mr. Tripp. Have you looked into teaching at local YMCA or rec clubs? Are there any colleges in your area that would have you as a adjunct professor teaching club Judo? Have you considered holding women's self defense classes at a local dojo? Offer those that come in a month free with you, and a month free for a friend. Get them in, get them bit bu the Judo bug, then profit.

    Once you have some students built up word of mouth should carry you.

    Time share with a local Karate dojo to keep the overhead low, and once the students start coming in look to expand. karate classes, at least in my area, run $60-$100 a month, undercut that even a little and you should be on your way. Get 15-20 students in per month, that's $750-$1000 a month, add class times, add students, rinse and repeat.
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    Both marktrippjudo dot com and findlayjudo dot com are available. If either strikes your fancy.

    Maybe, but it's also portable, and if he relocates then he can keep the same name. Also, if anyone searches for Mark Tripp it will come up in Google due to the address being the search terms.

    okok... hang on

    1.Marktrippjudo is great. You need to go to sciencemagician.com and budokanjudoclub.org to see what we have now.

    2. I'd like a "store front" at marktripp.com than can direct people to what I do that makes them happy.

    3. I was knocked off my bike by a car just before the FCM convention. I kept moving about and did not see anyone. I also taught a clinic that way. Wed last week my right leg and foot blew up huge; the foot was twice the size of the other. I am resting a bit with that.

    4. However, I am launching a new product this week which should be very helpful. It is also time for me to go after schools and shows, which I am working on.

    I see Judo and MA as extras to all that; and I will go after it. However, truth is Michigan is very dead, and dying. Findlay would be great, but I don't know if its that much better than Michigan.

    However, let me say how deeply touched I am by the kindness shown to me. The only thing that exceeds my gratitude is my inability to express it.

    Good suggestion. A lot of universities are filled with students interested in MA (at least over here they are).

    I've noticed that the University of Michgan (it's where Tripp sensei is based at, I presume) has a BJJ club, but no Judo. They also have Aikido and Ninjutsu. There should be quite a bit of interest in Judo there, especially if it's taught by a high-ranking judoka! See here: http://www.recsports.umich.edu/clubs/

    Michigan State has wrestling, but no other martial arts.

    Sorry if my geography is off. I'm not American. :)
