I charge money for classes - not all meetups work this way and some members haves asked why? Here are some reasons
I have trained in these arts for more than thirty years, I have dedicated countless hours, late nights, early mornings, refused invitations to training
I have had bones broken, joints dislocated, eyes blacked, nose bloodied not to mention muscle aches and minor strains to gain the knowledge that I have
Every year I spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of Euros to travel, train and research with the best teachers
I've tried teaching for free - I get abused, what I teach is not valued
I am here EVERY WEEK, and I pay PARIS PRICES for rent EVERY WEEK - which is another reason why I expect people who sign up to turn up
NOT TRAINING will cost you a lot more than I'm asking!
I don't like having to talk about this, I think it should be obvious, but I live in a culture that sees to value shiny stuff, alcohol and loud self promotion more than health and quiet value.
So let's move on...
meet some great people and explore the richness of these arts
