Considering that there's probably no martial arts lessons that are truly worth a "small fortune", I'd say that no, Lau Gar, whatever that is, probably isn't either.
Lau Gar is an absorbed system. Doesn't stand well on it's own.
I did Lau Gar years ago, only cost £2 a class though. The actual martial art was a load of bollocks but the class itself was alright. It was basically one third conditioning and pad work, one third 'traditional' bollox that Jeremy Yau made up and the other third sparring under light continous type conditions. So not exactly teh hardcore but I was more flexible, fit and sparred more often than I ever did doing wing chun in my early 30s.
Not that this means I would ever do Lau Gar again, but when I was 15 it was pretty cool and a good entry to martial arts.

I didn't even know Lau Gar still existed anywhere as an independent system.

Thats what i was wondering about, superficially it all sounds good but i'm not sure how well it works outside of the competition environment. The points sparring isn't fun either
Don't make me kill you.
