I believe this was asked on the old forum but wasn't answered.
Is any a member of Patrick McCarthys Irkrs? If so is it worth the yearly membership fee which is quite expensive.
I bought the journals CD-ROM from the group which has been an incredible resource. Apart from the forums there isn't much else.
When I could afford such things I found membership of McCarthy Sensei group great value - outside of the resources mentioned I was able to communicate with McCarthy Sensei directly about many things.
Keep in mind he is a proffesional martial artist and needs to make some money.
I did get several PM's in response to the original question on the old forum. All of them said that IRKRS was reputable and worth the subscription, at least to try it on and see if you like it.
