Re: Training fees

Our training is free in our dojo, but we pay dues to support the building, utilities and maintenance - and it is clear to us that's what our dues pay for. Our Dojo Cho has a booming business off the mat and the time he spends teaching probably costs him money and business. Our dues are considerably lower than neighboring schools and our dojo has been open for twenty years now in the same place.
