in reply to Need for a dojo?

The japanese term "dojo" literaly means 'A place of the way'. Such a place in our Monastery, would be a place to study and learn perl, not verbally fight each other.

Why not call it "Boot Hill" or something? Anything but dojo.

Maybe I'm too sensitive about this, but many people who practice Martial Arts have a special feeling for the dojo term.

Have a look at this page on what a dojo is (or can be).
