Didn't mean to be odd. I guess I was just wondering if others had similar experiences and what they felt about the whole contract thing. I will try the other dojo.
Over here you won't find a dojo or club where you don't have to sign a contract.
So to not train in a good dojo with a - seems so - good teacher because of having to sign a one-year-contract after six weeks sounds very, very strange in my ears.
May I ask how in the US you normaly become a member of a dojo if not by signing a contract?
In wich way do you "fix" this?
And what about people who don't pay their dues?
And do you only pay for the classes, you attend?
