I suppose it is hard to put an exact price on these things because there is no award rate for being a martial arts instructor. If a doctor or lawyer can charge massive amounts after studying at university for 6 or 7 years then why cant a top martial artist with 30 or 40 years experience charge top dollar to train under them? Top sports coaches in most fields are not cheap, a well respected tennis coach will charge heaps, so why cant a martial artist? I suppose this is the reckoning of some out there.

Doesn`t paying thousands of $`s for a test make people feel like they are buying rank rather than earning it? I certainly would.

If I was going to spend that kind of money I`d be getting a lot of private lessons with my favourite instructors instead.
