My master is like that, the prices are 95 dollars a month for a year contract, or 85 dollars a month for a three year contract. When we are in class he makes sure that everything and I do mean everything that we learn can be adapted for real life situations. I recall one day when doing three step sparing i was moving from the block to the strike too slow and he got mad and come over to us. He yelled at me and told me to move faster because in real life my attacker wont give me the time to counter attack. So we broke it down into just the last strike and block and practiced that way for the rest of class. He also wants us to come at least 3 or 4 times per week out of the 6 days the school is open, we can come all six if we want, but he wants our minimum to be 3 to 4 days. He is a great teacher also. If I had never seen him teach a class, I'd still hate TKD at this point instead of loving it.
