Tire Dojo

Transcripts available in the following languages:

Early ‘70s? Just run and hit tire. Many, many hours. Not too many drums, right? So everybody hit the car tire so we don’t make too much noise, too. We are Tire Dojo, not Taiko Dojo, Tire Dojo. Nothing but hit the tire. I think a lot of people quit. They just run, run, run, run. Then after run, hit the tire. It not fun. Only few, maybe 10 percent people remain.
