There are nonprofit schools out there, they are just hard to find amongst all of the disgusting bastardization of the martial arts by the commercial world. My association is nonprofit. We charge $20 per month and that is on a month by month basis. No contracts, no obligations. You come and train if you wanna learn, if you don't come, you don't pay. We even teach some people for free if they have financial problems. In martial arts, the quote "you get what you pay for" doesn't always apply. In fact, it is sometimes the opposite. Advice: sign no contracts. Look up non-profit schools in your area. They are often hard to find, since they don't advertise since that actually contradicts the principle of modesty in the martial arts, but you just have to look. If ya let me know where ya are I might can help you.
