This question is mainly addressed to Iain and other online trainers.
Do you feel that you are looked upon in a good light or bad light from other martial arts teachers.
One issue that I could see coming into play is that now anyone can go online and see every Kata disected down in detail. Exposing all the little details that would have taken others several years of study to be entitled to. Exposing all of the dealy details of that martial art. Students do not have to wait and pay for years of studying to understand the principles of kata and technques.
I personally think that it opens more dors for the good instructors to gain students that see something on line and want more, more personal instruction. More details that might be missing from online courses.
The instructions that I gather online only make me want more. But in my case I have to look harder online because I am not getting the answers in the dojo.
