Use an Envelope

Whenever you give money or a check to your sensei, you should put the payment in an envelope marked with your name and the nature of your payment (such as "John Doe. December tuition"). It is not proper to hand money or even a check to your sensei.

Using an envelope shows the proper courtesy and also makes it easier for your sensei to keep track of payments. Your sensei will feel uncomfortable asking you about your payment (or nonpayment), so make it easier for him or her by using an envelope. He can then give the envelope to the person handling such things in the dojo (if not him or her).
