Lightbulb Training facility Idea

THis is an idea me and a friend are tossing around and I would like a little feedback...

Basicly were planing on open a martial arts training facility but it si going to be open for all styles and forms of martial combat. What we would do is ask people are are able to teach (they would need to be certified with the proper credentials to do so by thier system) to basicly be available to teach others who are there. The place would allow for people from different styles a chance to see and learn styles they may not be familiar with or to just get a chance to practice against other fighters of varying skill levels.
Our main in house instructor is certified in 2 styles currectly plus I have several others who would be willing to offer time teaching... Yea sounds like most other schools so far but that is just it.. this would not be a normal school, training would happen based upon availablity of different instructors, and enrollment would be open to anyone who is serious about training. as for paying there are two ways to do so, a monetary donation ( weather in supplies or money for needed stuff) or in the donation of skills or labor, skills meaning being able to instruct, labor being helping out around the facility by cooking cleaning etc. yea I know this sounds odd. But this would be for regular martial artists as well as MMA poeple as well as both communities have people who are serious about training and learning new skills as well as wanting to help teach others.
Also if excess money is raised beyond what the school needs to function the money would be used to help out martial arts programs around the country where such programs are lacking or to bring deserving students who cannot affoard to travel to the facility a chance to come.

Basicly what I would like to know is how many people....
A) think this is a good idea
B) would take advantage of a traning facility like this
C) would like to help this idea come to pass

All comments are welcome as the idea is still in its early phase it is very fluid like water at the moment

Well, I think that IDEALLY (Sp?) the idea is great, however, practically, I don't know if it would work. It sounds good, when you just read it, but for you to get certified instructors to help with the training, who aren't getting anything more then a pat on the back, it will be hard. And furthermore, the dedication on the people who are BEING trained is very important as well, for you to have a class full of a rag-tag bunch would mean very little work being done. (I know this, I've seen it happen, in non-traditional schools - like this one)

ON THE OTHER HAND

I think that if you could get this idea to work, it would be brillant. And if I didn't live in little Lindsay Ontario, I would certainly help out in any way I could. But, since I can't, I won't. Haha. By all means, take your idea, and run with it. The worse that can happen of failure. And I'm sure you already realize, if you are afriad of failure, you shouldn't be doing Martial arts.

Great idea though!

I agree the concept is good but would not work. With different styles in the same facility heads along with egos will blow up and there would be too much friction. If there were a facility like this around were I live I would give it a shot anyway.

well see thats what I am hoping to promote good will between the styles and give people a chance to learn other styles and get exposed to them also a good chance to see differences in styles, ways of improving thier own skills and such they might have a weakness that another style would exploit and they would have a chance to learn that and cover up gaps in thier fighting and hopefully gain a respect for arts they do not know

Right.

Right, and ideally, this is what you want. But you need to take all peoples into consideration. The people that fight to fight. THe people that fight to learn. The people that fight to defend. All these people would be at this, Dojo-like facility, and so, you have to take all of these things into account. It's very seldom, (That I've seen) that a non-profit martial arts orgainaization works. People charge money not for the profit, but for the commitment that the money gives them.

true. but see were hoping mainly for the people who do not need to make the monatary commitment because they already live the life, and yes we do want the new people as well so they can be around people who take martial arts seriously and hopefully that will rub off on them
and of course anytime you get a group of people together you run the risk of conflict. and sadly too many schools espically in the area I am in now seem to be in it just for the profit, I have never seen prices so high in my life and I used to train in NY.
