My question is, what (if anything) do people feel they are owed in return for the dues they pay? What level of obligation beyond dues to people feel they owe their dojo?
It depends and it varies. I do not believe there's one universal, correct answer.
I also see it as a two way street. While "the dojo" may have expectations of me, it's also fair and equitable for me to have expectations of "the dojo".
