Outside Renovation: Part 1

This started on November 3, 2008, after the storm from the Halloween Party 2008. Penguins were shocked to see a hole in the roof of the Dojo, and a ladder leading to the top. On top there were several snow covered mounds, a torii (the red gate) with a sign that said "Dig Out The Dojo", and mountains in the distance. A strange penguin, later revealed to be Sensei was digging underneath the torii. Penguins were encouraged to shovel or drill on the snow.

Outside Renovation: Part 2

This started on November 10, 2008. More of the snow was uncovered and more of the landscape was visible. A Volcano, and Waterfall could be seen in the distance and more of the Dojo exterior could be seen.

Inside Renovation

The inside of the Dojo didn't change throughout the program. It had wood laying on the sides of the walls, cones, construction tape, lightbulbs, and a ladder/bridge leading up to the hole in the roof. On November 10, 2008, a sign with pads under it was added, which said: TRAINING Coming November 17.

Grand Re-Opening

On November 14, 2008, the renovations were complete. The hole in the roof was fixed, and nearly all the snow was removed. To celebrate Sensei, who had just revealed himself, decided to throw a small party in the Dojo. A pair of Geta Sandals were even given away to all players for their hard work. As the celebration ended on November 17, 2008, Card-Jitsu was released and Ninja training had begun.


  • If you clicked on all of the light bulbs and then one of the hard hat sign a ninja poster would pop up.
  • It was featured on the Card-Jitsu card Mobile Fire 1.
  • Before Sensei's identity was revealed his name appeared as '??????'.
