    Anyone heard of it? They teach JKD, Jun fan gung fu, escrima etc. Was wondering whether to join coz it costs £16 a week for 2 1&1/2 hour lessons. Seems a bit expensive. Any thoughts?

    Stxsas Keep on Flowing..

    It does sound a bit steep. Paying £8 for a 1 and half hour lesson..
    Who is the Instructor/Sifu?

    We are talking about Zanshin Kali, then Ralph Jones is the head instructor, he is a top JKD instructor a very good Wing Chun man, and a top Eskrima instructor too, As well as being a top instructor under Inosanto in Kali, he is also a 4th Grade Black Belt in Doce Pares "Multi Style" Eskrima which makes him a member of the oldest Eskrima Club in the World.

    For £8 per session it is cheap for what you are getting. Good Knowledge at the end of the day cost the instructor much more than more people realise, it is only fair he see's a return on his years and years of hard work and large amounts of money spent.

    Think about this, you can go for a private lesson in Tennis and you will pay in the region of £45 per hour, all that traiing from a failed Tennis player, for if he/she was any good they would not have time to teach you.

    And again it all depends on what you want to pay for, if you want a Mercedes Car, don't expeact to pay the same price as a Lada.

    Best regards
