Question Question about videos:

Does anyone have any thoughts on why martial arts instructional videos are so expensive? I understand that they have to make money also but do these things really need to cost $50-80 a pop?

well hazarding a guess, the final product will be bought by fewer consumers than an entertianment video.

That, and gral market value

That makes perfect sense, Alfonso. It's still no fun.

Our dojo, being a university club, is required to spend so much money each year for the benefit of the "whole university community" so we buy videos and place them in the library.
