shen - Usually, I like to start kids in the traditional Shendokai program so they learn proper Master-Student dynamics (focus, total obedience, how to make my snacks, etc)

But this kid is talented --his dad is a very rich plastic surgeon-- so I think we'll go right to KaJuShenBo, with a "Black Diamond Elite" or "Black Diamond Titanium Plus" membership package.

Ah ok, the "Lil' Ballers" program, where students learn how to make their first stack. Nice.

I wanted to inquire about your "big Ballers" program. I always thought it was just a painful, painful medical condition, but now I learn that I might be special?

Please let me know! Phone Post

shen - 
truehonor - I don't understand any of this. I thought you had your own belt system?

This is for BJJ, not for KaJuShenBo.

KaJuShenBo is taught ONLY to those who have the talent & dedication to purchase a "Black Diamond Elite" membership.

For the "regular" BJJ classes like his, I usually just put on an instructional dvd and catch a nap.

Thank you for the clarification.....and I trust you are a seasoned and astute enough businessman to be taking that DVD nap in the comfort of your own home while a (uncompensated' of course) blue belt is conducting those classes for you at your school.

The "Shen-anigans" are fast approaching critical mass on this thread.
