    This dude thinks MMA is scary only because he had no idea that's what martial arts looks like when actually employed effectively.

    From the site:
    * ALL DEGREES ISSUDED ARE CONSIDERED VOCATIONAL IN NATURE AND ARE NOT REGIONALLY ACCREDITED ACADEMIC DEGREES OR RECOGNIZED BY ANY EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY. CREDENTIALS ISSUED ARE DONE SO UPON THE RECOMMENDATION OF VOCATIONAL PEERS AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED VALID WITHIN THE MARTIAL ARTS INDUSTRY WHICH WILL VARY FROM GROUP TO GROUP.

    NOTE: The Florida Department of Education -- Commission for Independent Education, has definitively stated that the Masters College of Martial Arts is clearly "vocational" in nature and limits itself to the awarding of degrees specific to the martial arts community for prior accomplishments as well as identifying itself clearly as a religious organization and is not required to apply for a letter of exemption, nor does it fall under the Florida Department of Education's definition as a traditional school/college and therefore can operate free of interference with the current structure of the College.
    So, basically, yes he knows the "doctorates" he issues are crap.

    I don't think the degrees should even be vocational. Vocational implies learning a skill for use on the job, and they shouldn't be getting any money or jobs for what they do.

    Agreed, which makes it even worse. Bad enough to have the hubris to decide you can issue a doctorate, worse when you have to post on your site that you know it isn't worth the paper it's printed on, inexcusable when you know people are using the titles and misleading others.

    Yes, and that's what drives me nuts. Nowhere on any of their sites does it say this is an award or nonacademic. You have to look up the names and the place to find out it isn't recognized.

    I think it pisses me off more now that I have finished school.
