Re: How to Leave a Dojo?
I've just gone through something very similar. Lost a job in July, ran out of ready cash, borrowed from family, told sensei I'd have to stop coming because I couldn't pay (reduced for students/unemployed) dues, and was told by the sensei that he'd rather have me training with no dues until I can pay again than to have me not training.
Currently in the middle of moving to a new community to start a new job. When the head's back above water I'll look to joining a dojo in the new community, but not before - it's too painful to go to a dojo and not be able to join/pay.
