Re: When is long enough to long?

'That shows you are worried about grading, equality, etc. and, well, why?'

Thank you for the blinding assumption. I am not worried about grading or eqaulity, I am merely advocating not blindly following what we are told. Revenue generation is obviously the big one, as you said, with a shodan from hombu costing what? 100 or dollars? And getting more expensive as you progress. The other thing I find funny is the people who have the high grades and that received them relatively quickly have put in place a system that stops others from doing so. To be honest, Im not that bothered, Im happy where I am, with my instructors and my grade, so stuff like this doesnt really affect me, but I still like to exercise the old grey matter

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
