I think it can go both ways, I think it can flourish without a buisness attitude, I know of many sensais who taught under-privilegded students for free and was a great succes
They had many great students, However there is nothing wrong wtih a sensai trying to make some money of his skill to students, My teacher charged us extremely little for a years worth, but it has enough to keep him alive, I know he had no other job.
My problem is when they start charging for "extras" ... Like when TKD teachers charge there students for weapons classes ( even though TKD is empty hand style) or when silly extras get in the way.
Also (although this has to be assesed individually) teachers may slack of or not care if the are not getting paid. Or they can do that if they are.( even more when you pay for a year or half a year , and they have your money, so even if you dont go they might not care)
I think this question must be looked at individually because it can easily be argued both ways.
