The above image is an annotated sketch drawn by Sadateru Arikawa Sensei in my presence on October 22, 2000 at the Aiki News office in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture. I have left the underlying sketch intact but with the layer made 50% transparent. In addition, I have inserted gray lines to square up the various parts of the sketch to make it easier to discern details.
This is only a beginning attempt to reconstruct the layout of the old dojo. Since there are people still alive who have trained in the dojo, I would appreciate it if you would show them this drawing and have them make corrections and clarifications. Since tatami are of a standard size, it may be possible to bring the drawing somewhat to scale over the course of time.
