Answer by Arty
All the examples you gave are people dedicated to what they like and have high moral character sufficient to money should not really what matters in life to make. you must realize that the “decent life” is the heart of the beholder, then some people are really willing to sacrifice to achieve in life, what is important to make.

    I already have and will do it again…but just to teach a good classical system and run a good traditional dojo. I walked away from a $200K + per year job at Best Buy when my dojo began suffering due to my absence. I now teach full time barely clearing enough to pay my bills…BUT

    I AM MUCH HAPPIER IN MY LIFE AGAIN now that I am teaching full time. Screw material things. I just want to teach Karate :)

    Good question. I began my Ma training in 1967 at the age of 13. It quickly became an obsession. I studied Mechanical Engineering in college. I left college just before graduating to run my dojo full time. Although I held a few jobs to fill my financial needs I was basically a full time instructor from 1973 until late 1997. Since then I have continued to teach a few hand selected students. Now at 55-1/2 I am retired and teach a few student privately and travel to tech seminars. I only made good money teaching the last few years I owned a dojo. So I guess if anyone cane qualify for what you asked, I would be one of the top people.

    I have never heard of the people you mention in your description. I am not well known, but those that meet me want to learn from me. That includes some that have trained longer than I have. My worth is only what I can offer others. Many of my instructors continued to train me even though most of my life I could not pay for lessons. I always try to honor them by passing on what they have taught me. When I do I tell them who taught me the technique,…… Now at this stage in life, I wish that I had done something more profitable, but I’m proud that I did not sell out and become another McDojo. The temptation was strong, but I figured that if I sold out, My many years of hard training in legitimate arts would be a lie. If I had it to do over, I would have worked harder to have a regular income from a regular job. But I still would have spent as much time as I possibly could learning what I learned. Every time I wish I had gone for things that would have made me more money, I meet someone that would sell their soul to know what I know.

    I am currently taught by a master here in ausitn for free. I intend to pass it on when the time comes. I will not charge the people who’s hearts are in the right place.
