I am a martial arts instructor. Recently I was looking for a place that offered a master's degree in martial science and I came across your website. I found it very interesting and informative but also somewhat offensive.
The section on your site about accredited colleges was a big eye opener. I never knew anything about the difference between regionally accredited and distance learning. But thanks to you now I do and it was just in time because I am a former student of the American College of Martial Science. Although your website painted a somewhat different picture than what I went through there. Instead of dishing out large sums of money and handing in a couple of certificates and a resume, I was required to do similar things that a regular college would require. For instance, I had to send in a copy of my high school diploma, high school transcripts, college transcripts, an admissions form, and even a financial aid form. In addition, as the prerequisite you were required to have already taken English and Math college courses. The credits were $80 and you had to take certain classes to receive your degree, like Korean History. However, after I had received my associates from them they began to change into your description. The website would change almost every week and the prices and courses dropped but I still thought I had an accredited degree until I went to your site and began reading. I don't think he was trying to rip people off I think he was just trying to offer something that wasn't available he really is a nice guy that loves martial arts. I thank you very much you saved me before I wasted more time looking for a school like this.
