Tax Deduction - Your Shuyokan membership may be tax deductible, depending on your professional occupation. If you are, or are considering, taking self-defense lessons to make your workplace safer, or to protect yourself during business-imposed travel, your lessons may be tax deductible. As always, you should check with your tax accountant for details.

Discounts - All current students are eligible for discounts of 20% off their membership for every new student he or she brings in (up to 5 students). If a student brings in 5 new members then he or she would be able to train for free as long as those 5 students remain at the Dojo. Should one student drop out then this student would pay only 20% of the normal fees, if two students drop out he or she would pay 40% of the normal fees, and so on.
