You know, some products, like perfume, sell better if they cost more - because a high price is part of the 'luxury'concept which you are buying, along with the scent. When I suggested this to my teacher, he immediately replied "so you suggest I double my fees". Well, I did not say that

Cheap dojo and expensive dojo maybe are different niches on the market, so to speak.
