Re: What is a professional budo teacher?

Professional has mostly negative connotation in martial arts due to its connection to $. Personally, I don't think it matters if someone makes a few $ for his skill but what is often seen is that those who make tons of money at it are often 'the worst types' that give the word professional a bad name. Somehow, the meaning of being a teaching professional is lost. Kinda odd when you think about it.
