The Running A Dojo course will take roughly 3 months to complete, but new content will be added regularly in tandem with Adam Mitchell's Running A Dojo podcast and blog.

OK, I sure didn’t do this to get on any VIP list at the next martial arts trade show in Las Vegas. Infact, this program is going to upset a few people. After spending 14 years listening to business gurus, spending over $250,000 on consulting programs and high-dollar seminars where I rubbed elbows with the most successful school owners in the world, I’m convinced .. The great majority of these self-titled martial arts business gurus don’t know the first thing about running a real Dojo. Period. To serve those trying to do it right, I created Running A Dojo to blow-the-lid off the nonsense the martial arts industry is feeding well intended Instructors hoping to offer the best resources for their students.
I'm going to show you exactly how I created a successful Dojo with hundreds of students from all over the world by simply studying my martial arts more intently and keeping it real!
“Adam is one of the most forward-thinking people in the martial arts industry. I’ve seen with my own eyes as top-billed, big-name advisers in the biz were influenced by Adam’s actions. While I believe he would do the same in any business environment, I’m thrilled that he’s been so helpful to me personally, and to the industry in which I work. I always enjoy hearing his thoughts about what will happen next … and if you hear those ideas, pay attention.” Mr. Peter Steeves, International Training Director of the Guardian Angels, and Martial Arts School Owner. Los Angeles.
If you’re not totally satisfied with everything I’ve created, I’m going to refund your investment 100% AND you can keep all of the files I’ve provided. That’s a promise. There is absolutely no risk at all.
I truly look forward to working with you and helping your Dojo meet it’s success.
In this quiz, you'll be able to determine how well you retained the information taught in this sections.
In this video, I am going to break down how I created my nafuda for easy use and tracking of student attendance. As well, I've included a support file for you to edit and use based on your own program. Here's how this file should be used:
You'll notice that the file I include is for White and Yellow Belt and there are 'stripe' levels on the right side of each template in the file. I put these there for an example to use if you have a striping system on your belts for kids or adult classes.

This Module will cover one of the 3 “Pillars” of the KIR Program. This Module is meant to reaffirm your goals as a Budo teacher and address issues that we often take for granted. For those who have wandered off into the turf of the Industry Money Machine, this module is meant to re-calibrate your position as a leader of your Dojo.
The second Pillar of the KIR Program is meant to reaffirm your position in your Dojo as well as your place in the Budo you train. This is a must before we go any further. Often times we take this position for granted and it can cost us countless resources and even ruin our Dojo. It is about expectations and fulfillment, and combined will generate strength in your Dojo.
The third pillar of the KIR Program addresses the product we are creating in a Budo Dojo. Mastery is something that we all strive for, it is not something self-proclaimed and this module is meant to give you a clear idea of how to communicate the goals of your Budo to your students. This alone will help you to keep students indefinitely.
The first instructional module will address fundamental areas to the success of your Dojo. Teaching from your “Core” versus your “Shell,” Running a Personality Driven Dojo versus a Curriculum Driven Dojo and finally, defining the “Sell-out.” This Module is packed with details that will help you to change, add or tighten up areas of your Dojo to make it more fulfilled.
