The Martial Arts world has a term for martial arts school chains: "Mc Dojo". Some describe a McDojo as having a litany of courses like a menu, flashy marketing, and expensive contracts. Other describe them as anything outside traditional martial arts that runs the operation like a business instead of a Dojo or has shady business practices. The term "McDojo" turns the stomachs of many a martial arts teacher, but is running a business all that bad? Can teachers wear flashy uniforms so long as their curriculum is solid and has a bonafide lineage? We want to hear from our listeners. Call in to add your two cents!
