Blaine tackles the topic of McDojos in this episode of AikiCast. If you dont know what a McDojo is then you owe it to yourself to listen to this one! There are lots of lessons to be learned from McDojos and Blaine helps put it into proper perspective. There's also a little history lesson about the real Chef Boyardee (think Spaghetti-Os and Ravioli) and how his vision helped him develop his own 'McDojo' type of business that eventually made him and his family fabulously wealthy.
