No, We believe if a student is paying monthly tuition, they are a good student, they are learning what they need to learn, they are a good person, the promotion whether it be a stripe which is recognition on their belt or a new belt. That’s part of the tuition, that’s a recognition, it’s a progress report and or here’s your new belt rank. That should all be included in their tuition.
It bothers me to no end that other martial arts schools basically hold their students hostage. They collect a monthly tuition, then they still charge you more just to verify you know what we taught you, and then they charge you for a piece of tape.
We will never charge anyone for any rank promotion and I don’t think anyone should charge tested fees.
