Students who train at least once a month or who consider themselves members of the dojo should pay monthly dues. You can't buy technique. And the WRC does not sell instruction. But it is necessary for members of the community to financially support the dojo so that the WRC can continue to be a place for people to come together and practice the art of peace. If you wish to train in Aikido but the cost of dues would impose hardship on you or your family, please contact us.
Dues are to be paid monthly, no later than the 10th of the month. Payments must be cash or check - we do not accept credit or debit cards. Dojo members understand they must pay their dues every month, regardless of how many or few classes they choose to attend in a month, for as long as they consider themselves members of the dojo (unless other arrangements have been made with Sensei directly).
Adult Aikido Classes
Individual Member Plan
We have sliding scale dues of $85 to $110 to be paid by students who train at least one class a month. This is an honesty-based policy. To pay more or less than you can afford would be dishonest. We will not tell you what you can afford. We do not ask about your financial situation, but we do expect your honesty in paying dues.
Our family fees are $110 for the first family member, and an additional $30 for each family member thereafter.
Kids' Self-Mastery Classes
The Fee for one child taking classes is $65 per month. Each additional child is $45 per month.
The WRC welcomes visiting students of all ages and skill levels. If possible, please contact us in advance to introduce yourself and get permission from Sensei to join class. Otherwise, please stop by for class and speak to the instructor before training begins.
Visiting students are asked to pay a mat fee of $10 each day they come to train.
Dues are paid monthly. At the present time we do not require contracts or direct withdrawal of dues. It is the student's responsibility to keep up with their dues. Any student more than 1 week late in paying dues may be charged an additional late fee of $15.
If at any time paying your dues becomes a problem, promptly make a private appointment to speak with Sensei. We would not like to lose a valued student because of unfortunate circumstance and will try to find a solution that is good for everyone.
