Why we created Bushido Dojo Software

here is our story

You didn’t open a dojo so you could spend quality time updating spreadsheets and tracking invoices, but that’s what a lot of dojo managers end up doing.

I’m here to change that.

I decided to write Bushido Dojo Software when talking to the person who runs the dojo my son attends. It’s a successful small business. It has a dedicated clientele and it’s growing, but the manager was upset by how much time he spent on nonsense. The problem wasn’t that he had to spend time dealing with contracts, payments, receivables, marketing and all the things that businesses have to do. The problem was all the time he spent wrestling with a million different software packages trying to cobble together something he could actually use.

As a software developer, that got my attention. Good software isn’t just a bundle of features that people can use or not as they choose. That’s how you get all those things my son’s dojo manager was using. Good software addresses a specific situation and brings together only those features that fit.

That’s why Bushido Dojo Software has a way to manage schedules, track belts, and send e-mails to students, but doesn’t do anything about project management or financial risk projection. It’s specifically designed to help run a dojo. It puts everything you need at your fingertips while getting everything else out of the way. It puts security first, and it’s accessible anywhere.

That means you don’t have to wrestle with spreadsheets and calendars. It means you can stay on top of all the business details without neglecting any of the things you started a dojo to do. It means less time sitting behind a desk and more time teaching.

Because that’s why you opened a dojo.

I created this software, to help smaller martial arts schools offer their students the quality teaching of a dedicated teacher who can focus on their art, instead of the running of their office.
