    2, We had 'Issues' that involved her being threatened by myself and other highly advanced students surpassing her.

    And I am not being self absorbd here, or self promoting myself. She's had her day. And i'm not the only one with that opinion.

    So I moved on. Three times. I'm still learning new moves, and couldn't be happier

    Post Hi Lydia

    Hi Lydia.
    I realize my statement may be offensive to some people, and I apologize if I have. But I know her. And trust me, she ain’t on this forum. She doesn’t encourage her students to go to other teachers, she openly bad mouths them without thought. And she doesn’t take workshops.
    I left her because she told me I was violent and vicious. A statement that couldn’t be further from the truth.
    And if I remember, I didn’t mention who it was for that reason.
    She also claims that one woman, one of my good friends, was a cult leader because she talked to people in a friendly manner to welcome them. Go figure

    Dear Stacy,
    I have several students who can not make my regular classes and they instead opt for private or semi-private classes with me. Is this a possiblity for you and the teacher you want to advance with?

    I'm not sure, I was never aware of her giving private lessons but I was on the instructor list on this website just recently and saw it had listed that she did private lessons. She never mentioned it. It maybe something I should check into although I don't know how much that would run if I could afford it.
