I'm married with 2 kids. What is this "extra cash" thing?

Seriously, whether the group is nonprofit or not, the instructor should get some kind of compensation for his/her time, skill, and effort. Even if it's just enough to cover purchasing new dogis, weapons, and seminar fees- he/she should be compensated so appreciation is noted.

There are many nonprofits that are allowed to pay certain individuals salaries. It would take some serious research because rules often differ from state to state. I would try to get an attorney and an accountant to join the dojo for free advice (not really joking here! )
