Re: How Should We Conduct a Black Belt Presentation?

Hello,

All our students pay a fee of 2,500 yen per month (just over $US 26) for general dojo expenses. (None of the instructors takes a fee.)

The dojo--not the students individually.

The ceremony is part of the dojo training.

The students receiving their black belts/hakama pay nothing. The rest of the dojo memberships pays a proportion: the dojo pays the rest.

Really, it is not such a big deal.
