The latter. Gary, as I've stated elsewhere, was obsessed with balance. Unfortunately, and at times, the very balance that he was attempting was due to another imbalance he'd created. So sometimes it was. "That which I fear has come upon me," reactions in the plus and minus mayhem of it all. This is not to detract from what he did right, just that sometimes in padding the rules and in attempting to rule every little facet he backed himself into such corners, that's my only explanation for such things he never used himself but felt that others would possibly need.Anyway, was training a thing at all? Or was that just something Gary made up because it sounded good? lol.
Nope. No training was used at all for money or time spent.
