I help teach to I exchange what I would normally pay for myself and my son for free lessons. Normally I would pay $60/month and if I paid for myself and my son it would be $110.

$79 a month for iaido. Drops to $64 a month if I pay for a year in advance.

My cost is free for life since I teach. My kids are $125.00 each per month, they can train every night from 4:30pm to 6:15pm if they desire (I wish) Our MA is JJJ and Goju Ryu and grappling. Kids can't do any MMA work until they are older for obvious reasons. The grappling is limited also due to the powerful lock and joint manipulation.

$64.20 CAD per month that allows me 6 days a week/8 classes though I've never taken full advantage of this. I usually give $65 and don't worry about the change as I get other benefits that money couldn't purchase. This is for TKD/BJJ, though more emphasis on the TKD; however the other benefits are BJJ/MMA related.

my training is "free" since I teach, but the regular student pays 55 a month or 150 for three months. Classes are held 6 days a week.

Of course there are between fifteen and twenty scheduled classes per week and I would be permitted to attend all of them.

There is not enough of me to make it that far.

My first instructor, an amazing fellow who went by the name Ishikawa Ken-Ichi, only taught to friends, for free. Two classes a week, approximately 2 to 3 hours a class. He then considered making it 30 euros a year, but unfortunately he moved and I lost track of him. I don’t know if he still teaches, and if he does I don’t know if he charges for it now.

Then my jujutsu / kobudo instruction in the UK, at the hand of Mr. Garry Philips (rokudan) was 5 pounds a class, 5 classes a week (1 on Monday, 2 on Wednesday, 2 on Saturday). Attending two classes on the same day got them reduced to 7 quids for both (which was systematically the case for me since I always attended all 5 weekly lessons).

My Chinese MA instruction in France, by Mr. Nguyen Nguen-Ha (qiduan, Chinese equivalent of a shichidan) costs 380 euros a year for one weekly class, and for 480 you can attend as many as you like (every week has: a traditional gongfu class, a competition-wushu class, a basic taiji-quan class, an advanced taiji-quan class, a sanda class, a qigong class, each class lasts 2h30).

My iaido instruction, by Ms. Frédérique Sanselme (not sure what her rank is, come to think of it I never asked her) costs 20 euros a year (+ 14 for the federation license stamp), one class a week, 2 hours.

I don't pay fees, but even if I did I wouldn't equate monetary fees with a 'return'. I don't approach martial arts as something one can 'get' for money, and wouldn't take teaching from someone with that perspective. I think that it's futile to compare what one 'pays' and what one gets in return; For me, it's all about the intangibles.
