Re: signing a contract
I wouldn't want to sign the contract myself. That is a lot of money to put up out front when you don't know what lies ahead in your life. You haven't even checked out the other dojo yet. Take a hiatus from this dojo to "think about it" and go check out the other dojo. Now that you have a feeling of what you like, you can better compare the other dojo. Keep in mind though, that just because it IS different doesn't mean you wouldn't like that as well. Try it out and see. Best of luck.
