Re: Training fees

I have known a few dojos that have made exceptions and given people a discounted rate trying to be helpful. And I've met a couple of people along the way who have taken advantage of these dojos.

As mentioned in other threads, it costs a significant amount to run a dojo and on top of that I believe the Sensei deserves to be paid for his time and committment.

I've never understood why there seems to be a lot of people who think martial arts should be taught for free but I don't hear very many people saying mechanics, plumbers, electricians, doctors, etc. should peform all of their services for free.
