comment Do shin guards defeat the purpose of training?
I can't speak for the OP's school, but in mine, it's not that leg kicks are "raining down on your shins," but rather that a number of kicks connect at the kicker's shins.

comment What qualifies a school or business as a legitimate martial arts system?
@JPM - Keep in mind that it still costs money for things like mats (which are surprisingly expensive) and a training location, so it shouldn't be unreasonable for an instructor to ask for compensation. There is, however, a difference between charging a tuition and price gouging. When it comes to cost, the question should be (in addition to David's questions) "is this reasonable for what I'm getting?"
