    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Why Yes, I'm A Deserving Martial Arts Professional

    ... and I want my legal martial arts PhD!

    http://martialartsphd.com/

    Really, there's not a single sentence on the page that doesn't provide awesome entertainment, but here's a representative taste:
    The International University San Diego, in conjunction with the U.S. Grand Masterís Council, waives the usual criteria for the degree, including matriculation, residency and exams. The Board of Regents evaluates all applications and transfers the appropriate credits to The International University. Applicants are awarded a Martial Arts or Martial Science degree.
    But wait, the fun doesn't stop there! Check out the website from the US Grand Master's Council - http://www.usgrandmasterscouncil.com/ ... owned and operated by the same Dr. Ron Marek.

    Why doesn't something like this go in the Fraud forum? It seems like I've actually heard of people having degrees in martial arts/science, this could be more than a laugh for somebody.

    Well, what's to be investigated? It says, right on the website, that they are full of ****. All that is left is the laughing.

    Lol I hope you never lose your edge. But I meant more for organizational purposes, not necessarily an investigation. The investigation appears to have already been done, unless of course it actually says somewhere on the website "we are troll, we are full of ****." I haven't even looked into seeing as how I'm not interested in this type of degree.

    You're assuming I didn't send mine in before posting it here. I anticipated a flood of interest.

    Some awesome quotes from the application form:
    “Is This A REAL Degree?”
    Yes, an honorary degree or a degree honoris causa (Latin: 'for the sake of the honor')
    is an academic degree for which a University (or other degree-awarding
    institution) has waived the usual requirements (such as matriculation, residence, study
    and the passing of examinations). The degree itself is typically a doctorate or, less
    commonly, a master's degree, and may be awarded to someone who has no
    prior connection with the institution in question.

    Usually the degree is conferred as a way of honoring a distinguished visitor's
    contributions to a specific field, or to society in general. The university often
    derives benefits by association with the person in question
    (emphasis in bold is my comment)
