Re: Ask not, what your dojo can do for you..

IMHO, you get what you pay for. Dues are the basic requirements to help pay for the rent, utilities, and insturctor's time. As in the class, you get out of it, what you put into it. Low investment, low returns. Higher investment, usually higher returns. A sense of particpation and contribution can really add to make a Dojo "home" versus an empty "gym" as someone said. There are a lot of way that students can get involved and contibute to their Dojo and training. I encourage it. But, to each their own level.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
