These MOBILE DOJO have had semi-permanent residence and can also be set up and taken down in one night. Sometimes running off of generators or stolen power sources. One said, DOJO codenamed: The Eagle's Roost, was one of the longer permenant running DOJO with a large library of sound and equipment. The 2010 release "Northeastern Eagle Fist" was recorded at this location. With its start in early 2007 The Eagle's Roost was host to the majority of sound and recorded samples that lie in The JADE PALACE VAULT. This location was destroyed in a Mysterious fire the summer of 2010. Vinyl and music equipment was lost, but the majority of The JADE PALACE VAULT and its collection of sounds were saved. Since then The JADE PALACE at its new location codenamed: UNKNOWN, has released multiple Experimental, Electronic and LO-FI Kung Fu Digital EPs and a recent CD.

The story they will tell you...
The Jade Palace crashed landed on Earth after LOCKSMITH a beat maker from another dimension and time unlocked a time portal to ancient China. In doing so he stumbled upon The JADE PALACE and was able to unlock the palace gate releasing palace drummers SNEED THE JADE BADGER and MR. CHI-202 from a 33 year imprisonment sentence for making music that drove the royal subjects to riot. In doing so the three were able to escape and then took over the Palace Vault , which is a giant time machine in itself.

With the Palace now in the hands of these renegade beat makers, they set off around the galaxies, collecting sounds from everywhere and any time! This Year 2011 the JADE PALACE was caught in a cosmic explosion and was pulled into Earth's atmosphere. Crash landing in a sculpture park in Poughkeepsie NY. The time and dimension traveling component was damaged beyond repair and the pieces remain in said park.. The JADE PALACE is now stuck here on Earth forced to make dope beats and survive on Hard Apple Cider and Bong Hits.
