Making Masato Dojo (4 real)

Postby Masato » Tue May 04, 2021 4:01 pm

Hey all

So my kids have twisted my arm to make a gym in my garage. My daughter is all into weightlifting and kickboxing and my son still training BJJ with me. My daughter's been lifting weights in the basement and its awkward there so she's thrilled to get a bigger space.

I am doing it on a ghetto budget, not gonna drywall or insulate or anything fancy. Not yet anyways, we can update it over time as we can afford. But for this summer we're gonna keep it pretty basic.
Biggest expense will be the mats + a box to put my garbage outside because so far we keep it in the garage.

We've spent the past couple weeks clearing out the garage, taking stuff to the dump or donation etc. Its almost clear then we can start cleaning it up and putting in the mats.

I have a lead on a heavy bag we may get for cheap/free but still waiting on that.

Hopefully it'll be ready in a couple weeks, I'll post progress.

This is the cleanest my garage has looked, ever. lol:

Already got the grappling mats. Ordered some thinner mats for weights, my daughter thinks if the mats are too soft its bad for posture or something.

The thinner mats should arrive in the mail this week.

Next I have to assemble the garbage/recycling box:

Put together a storage box for the garbage.

We have raccoons here that scavenge every night. They are strong, determined, and crafty. If you let them access to your trash they will have a party with it at 2am

Many mornings I discover someone left one of the doors ajar and rotten food and garbage all over the place lol

This thing seems to be pretty well designed. I'm digging it

So no more garbage in the garage. First decent sweep:
