For not wanting to pay for a belt promotion? I'm 9 months in and don't have any stripes. Our annual belt promotion is coming up and you have to pay. I already pay $150 a month, so I'm upwards of $1800 or more a year to train. I enjoy it, and it keeps me coming back but I'm a 40 yeard father who: 1. Won't gain anything from a stripe or new belt 2. Have children who I'd rather spend the the money on I stay and clean mats, bought shirts from the school and have donated to fund raises, but I'm really having a probllem with this. So if I don't go, is it a dick move? Do they just keep me with no stripes until I pay and go?
