The seminar will *probably* be $190. We all realize this is a lot,
Actually, it's a little below average for a good teacher coming from Asia. In fact, it's sort of a deal. In terms of internal strength, information is extremely hard to get and some people go 20 and 30 years without getting any (or just getting the occasional bits and pieces), missing the boat entirely. Anyone that can save you time is saving you money and wasted years. 190 bucks for a good step in the right direction should be a good investment. (Note: I admittedly have not met Akuzawa, so my comments are general, about the cost of a good workshop).
