Hosts make money when they have a Law of Self Defense Class at their facility. Our standard profit share for hosts is 20% of registrations after cost. Most hosts make a few hundred dollars, some make quite a bit more. So the more seats you fill, the more you earn!
Before we can lock in a class date for a host, however, we do require a “Scheduling Security Deposit” of $500. This deposit is refunded in full on the day of the class. If, however, the class is cancelled for failure to hit any of the minimum number attendance goals as described below in “WHAT ARE THE HOST’S RESPONSIBILITIES FOR REGISTRATIONS?,” Law of Self Defense reserves the right to retain this deposit.
The reason for this deposit is to ensure that a prospective host does not ask us to lock in a revenue-generating weekend unless they have a reasonable expectation of meeting the attendance goals. It is our hope that every deposit will be refunded in full because the attendance goals have been met. That said, the host has a far better understanding of their own ability to attract students than does Law of Self Defense, and we do not wish to lock in one of our limited number of revenue-generating weekends if even the prospective host is uncertain that they can hit the minimum number attendance goals.
The Scheduling Security Deposit can be paid here.
