Save Vassie Naidoo Shihan's Dojo in Santa Monica

Dojo Community,

The pandemic has been hard on everyone, and the Goju community is no exception.  We need your help.

For over a year now, our month to month revenue has been down 70%.  We’ll be getting some Paycheck Protection money from the Federal Government soon, but it wont cover our immediate needs.

We need to start paying rent again now.  Our lease expired at the end of last year so we don't have any protection against eviction.  We’re fortunate we haven't been evicted, but our landlord is growing impatient.

The good news is that if we can keep the Santa Monica dojo, we’ll be able to get in there for ’in person’ classes safely in the next few weeks.

Please also restart your membership here.
This is, of course, the most sustainable way of supporting the great work we do for the community.  

Thank you for your support.

Vassie Naidoo
