    I am not saying either way just showing you a vocabulary which might help you in your future.

    I don't think it is the management or business model stuff that is bothering you. It rarely is ... until they try to stop paying instructors and telling them they should only be doing it for the love of the art and their next belt while raking in the same amount of cash as before.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Am I really the only one that thinks death match challenge???

    Beating the crap out of him in front of everybody is the only way to prove your Kung fu is superior and thus everybody should do what you say.

    Jeez it took two days for somebody to tell him the obvious ffs what have we become ?


    By the way my sister used to have a guinea pig called Shostakovich when she was 7 and i 5yrs old.
    One day it died and I tried to use my alien powers to resurrect it.
    Sadly I was only 5 and yet to learn I was not an alien and lacking in the power of resurrecting dead guinea pigs.
    It remained dead

    Alright. Death match. I'll sweep the leg, then use my no-can-defense technique.

    I personally think you're being too ambiguous with the details for me to concur with anything you're saying.

    For all we know the OP is really the one doing the mcdojo-ing and just wants clues as to how to keep the disgruntled members from leaving.

    Intriguing...*strokes beard*

    How would you stop your top students starting a new gym that caters to their needs....DEATH MATCH IS THE ONLY ANSWER
    Daniel: I don't know if I know enough karate.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    Death match is a good catch-all answer, I guess.
