Open house

Some of the other businesses in the complex were having an open house, so I went down and opened up the dojo too.  Izaya and Jenna came as well, and Sid hung out a bit.  I gave the mayor a tour of the facility.  We handed out some flyers and business cards, and Izaya impressed some folks by doing ukemi on the concrete.  Impressed me too – haven’t done that in decades.  We practiced 13 and 31 point jo kata in the parking lot, and Izaya got pretty good at the 13 point one.  He and Jenna danced a bit, getting more attention for the dojo.  Overall, we got a lot of attention.  Hopefully it will result in a new student or two.
