Please do not take this the wrong way. I am not trying to be a smartass, glib, or forcing you to philosophically reflect on your principles. I don't know you, haven't trained at your gym, nor do I know anyone who talks down on your, your gym, or your methods. I have a simple question.
Do you ever do an event or seminar that doesn't cost any money? If not, why not?
I live in Oregon. This sounds like a cool event to go to, but traveling to Portland costs enough. Maybe you would get some awesome press, by word of mouth and the internet, if you just threw a gathering of a bunch of cool martial artists to get together and train?
Who wouldn't want to be a part of a day or two or three of free training, idea sharing, method dissecting, etc. with some of the best guys in the northwest? Just tossing an idea out. Thanks.
