Re: Training fees

I train at a non-profit dojo; none of my instructors get paid for their efforts. But even at a non-profit dojo we still pays dues for maintenance, heat, electricity, water, and training equipment. Running a dojo costs money, and so to expect to get training for free is to expect your sensei, in effect, to be paying you to train.
