No traditional Gongfu Kuan is a "for profit" organization. The tuition and fees that you, as a student, pay are merely a way of insuring that the Kuan will be sustained, that the arts which are taught at the Kuan can be preserved, and that you will continue to receive the highest quality instruction. In this way Sifu can afford to devote his full attention to training and sharing his Gongfu with you while meeting the expenses of teaching and operating a martial arts school.
Your relationship with your Sifu is a Master/Pupil relationship and not Merchant/Customer. It is too easy to lose sight of the true meaning of tuition in our modern commercial world. However, there are some things like Gongfu Instruction that have an intrinsic value that exceeds the sometimes superficial values of our modern society.
