This whole thing is ridiculous and out of prospective I believe everyone has a right to learn to defend themselves. If people aren't taught to defend themselves we are raising victims. Some people just dont have the money to be able to pay for this. This whole year we have offered free classes to those who couldn't afford membership. I never have felt right about charging. Loyality?? The only people you can expect loyalty from is your friends. There is this attitude that you have to charge your friends because your enemys won't buy from you. Well, I've never felt right about charging my friends for this. If you are charging your friends and they are truly your friends than you probably don't fell great about it either. A lot of this is only about pushing a brand and making it profitable so people can make a living doing what they love. I get that but don't be a hypocrit and claim anyone owes your band loyality. If you have to play the loyality card on your people you have a problem.
