Re: Where does the money go?
When talking about seminars...and the $$ we all pay to get to participate in one....consider just one factor as an example of where the money goes......insurance...
Have you looked into the cost? I know that a one day premium of insurance for a martial arts class can be upwards of $500 to $600 dollars...depending on the number of students attending the seminar.
I am sure that cost varies from area to area.....but that takes a large chunk right off the top.
Then all the other costs involved can eat up all entry fees...and leave the dojo with $0 profit.
