Re: Paying for testing?
We pay mat fees...£1 per lesson.
Having said that we don't pay for the hall or mats. We recently got 68 new ones from the University, bless them.
All of it goes into the club bank account though to subsidize seminars, trips, nights out and paying travel costs to bring teachers to the club and so on. It pays for a mobile phone for Martin (sensei) for club business too.
Keep in mind that generally students couldn't normally afford large training fees though.
