    Since we are halfway on the subject of McDojos i want to chime in here and say that the landscape of martial arts has changed so freaking much i currently study SKK (not through a villari school btw) i take it with my son i hold a BB in KUng Fu San Soo,when i was when i was coming up through the KFSS system the price was$25 a month for saturday only $35 for friday and saturday, my instructor and his family lived in the back of the Dojo (an apartment nothing big) and worked "real jobs" during the week there were never belt tests if he thought you were ready to be promoted at the end of class he would have us kneel call our name and give us the belt the class gave polite applause he'd charge us 10 bucks for the belt and class dismissed, he would teach us what we were ready to learn combinations forms weapons when you recieved your BB he wouldn't charge you anything to come to work out saying "an instructor should never have to paying to to use the dojo" and that my friends to me is what real martial arts is all about

    yeah in a ideal world , but theres so many fakes and frauds out there ,

    but I do think a bonafide teacher should be able to make a living out of teaching legitimate martial arts , after all we pay school teachers and college professors. I dont have problem with that , but its the gimmicks and the come ons I hate.
