comment What qualifies a school or business as a legitimate martial arts system?
Well i tell you one thing I was there at the time before and after the arrests. Some of the stuff they did teach was legit, Hapkido, Judo, Karate...but when they said John C.Kim had powers beyond comprehension and wanted you to pay $500 a month in cash for training to teach you these powers, that is where I drew the line. I paid always with check and no more than $100/month.

comment What qualifies a school or business as a legitimate martial arts system?
All I know is that school tried very hard to get as much money out of us. Then they would put you on a fast track to black belt. After all the channel 9 news and arrests, I left and found Kung Fu, where the instructors barely took money, no belts or tests but extreme training a passing down of the knowledge they had. That to me is what martial arts should be not a business.
