Given that this board is basically dormant, I disabled the contact page, rather than spending hours trying to figure out a fix.

Not sure why they are charging so little? I've been to and seen advertisements for many seminars, from little-known instructors that are among the best to world-renowned instructors whose names alone hold monetary value. Hour-for-hour, I don't recall ever seeing a seminar this expensive, so I think...

$150 for a five-hour seminar? That'd be awfully hard to justify even in a high cost of living area like Washington DC, much less Dayton. I've seen seminars with prominent heads of systems (people training since well before Kenneth Lin/Lin Xiang Fuk was born) flown in from around the world that cost ...

Is anyone familiar with Dennis Globosky (aka Dennis St. John or Dennis St. John Globosky )? He claims to have been a seven-year student of Guy Savelli and Ray Cunningham in the late 60's and 70's. He says that sometime in the 70's, he went to New Mexico and spent a month or more to convince Master R...
