Hmmm good question I have no idea. I taught over 100 students for 3 years for free. At the local gym. The last year and a half I was being payed. Once my instructor opened a new school he took over my 100 students. So i pretty much bank rolled his school. SO now I recieve free lessons. I did it for the love of the art. I was also inspired by my instrucotr. When I first met him in 2000' he was only charging 50 dollars per person. And he was giving family discounts. A family of 8 people were only paying $200 a month. What a saint!

I thought here is a guy who loves this art. Not to mention he teachers the aspect of TKD which most schools charge extra for teaching, he teaches sports tkd and trains atheltes. MOst TKD schools charge extra for this kind of training because its modern. Most traditional instructors dont know much about modern sports sparring and strategies. Thats why I always say. It doesn't matter whether a school is a member of the WTF that doesnt mean they know anything about olympic style sparring.

As a matter of fact there was another school in town, who lost 25 students to us, and I'm talking about state and national champions because they were not recieving the proper training.

I'd suggests artists are often people who can afford to be.
