I completely understand your point. Everything I've bought on kettlebell training has come from either DragonDoor itself or from one of the SRKCs, and I encourage anyone who wants to start training with them do them same. Pavel, Mahler, Cotter, Maxwell, SSG Morrison, every RKC I've met: All great instructors, from what I've seen and heard, and all of the SRKCs have excellent DVD and in-person instruction.
However, some people just want a cheaper option for their 'bells. *shrugs* Especially us broke college guys. :happy:
