The Gainesville Dojo will be relocating to a new locating after 14 years on SW 2nd Avenue. The new location will be larger and closer to the University of Florida. Keith Teller, the owner, hopes the new location will increase memberships and community involvement. Gainesville Dojo is one of the many entrepreneurial success stories within the local business sector. The business has found itself in the midst of the technological boom in Gainesville by being located near Innovation Square and Downtown Gainesville. Gainesville Dojo currently offers discounts for Innovation Square employees but hopes to work closer to student housing and university colleges to increase their presence amongst students and young professionals in their new location. Class offered range from self-defense classes to boxing to Wing Chung Kung Fu.
The move allows for the proposed Nimbus Cowork to move in Gainesville Dojo’s old location. The co-work building will have shared and private office space for independent workers and entrepreneurs. The building will allow these workers to have a more professional space for their work.
