Terms of Use

This site exists for the education, enjoyment, and reference of all persons interested in the Martial Arts and their related philosophies.  Ironcrane Dojo has been on line from the dawn of the internet with completely open access to all of its resources.  Early on, we had hoped sales of Ironcrane instructional videos and patches to visitors would in time offset the mounting expenses. 

Regretably, that has not been the case.  Daily traffic has grown beyond our earliest imaginings (well over a million visitors), and costs have continued to escalate as new technologies emerged.  As it stands, the site will continue in its current form so long as funds remain available.  I would suggest you glean what you can from it while it remains active.

You may cast your vote for our continuing existence by  donation, or by purchasing some patches from our store.
