comment How effective are different pricing structures for martial arts studios?
An important variant form of per lesson plan I've been seeing is to purchase lessons in bulk. So you can purchase, say, a set of 10—30 lessons together in one package but when you use them is up to you. This has the advantage from a teacher standpoint of securing a certain amount of income up front, while providing the student significant flexibility.

comment What is the best martial art for reducing back pain and stress while increasing my fitness?
1) It is almost always bad to promote any single martial art as an answer, because I could just as easily say "capoeira" which is also true, but in a different way 2) Tai Chi is most emphatically not a substitute for strength training, and won't substitute for yoga or even meditation for everyone (e.g., I frequently prefer vipassana). It covers some of the same territory and makes a great compliment, but that doesn't make it a good substitute.

comment Why Do Pressure Points Work Differently Against Different People?
Generally the ones that are targeted most frequently map to both, e.g., the one I linked to there is an acupuncture point, but it is also interconnected to a bunch of different nerve tissue. I also flat don't have it on one side.

Thanks for the reference, I'll check it out. Unfortunately the vast majority of references I've found on knife fighting are really atrocious >_<
