Hi Eric and Andrew,
What I meant was "freestlye/sparring" randori. You know, like "you twist my wrist and I'll twist yours" -- anyway, it was just an example.
You're right, perhaps "money" was the wrong word. Feel free to substitute "ego" or "class size", if you prefer.
Finally - hey I'm on a coffee break folks - the average student today has much more knowledge of history and a lot less inclined to succumb to myth and legend (at least over the long term). This in my mind results in a more well rounded martial artist.
I couldn't agree more.
Peter, where's Quebbec?
