    Do you think it'd be worth it? I know distance training is usually a bad idea, but I wondered what people thought.

    Wow. I just lost a HUGE amount of respect for the Dog Brothers.

    I met both Eric & Marc (founders dog brothers) they're both badasses & I wouldn't take them on for anything...this does seem a bit strange for them, but...hey. I would love to train with them personally, but not long distance. I've trained with their videos a few times

    Long distance is no way to learn anything

    Even the best M.A. would be diluted and taught incorrectly long distance.

    In my opinion, long distance training is a characteristic of McDojo mentality - the teacher knows you'll get almost nothing real from it, yet he is selling his "knowledge" expensively. All those things should be aids for fellow teachers and experienced students to widen their horizon and try to study them based on their pre-existing knowledge, not for any beginner.

    If you've got money to burn then why not?
    Just don't use it as your only form of training...

    This kind of stuff is a controversy with alot for alot of eskrimadors since there are so many groups that do this (Sayoc Kali, Bakbakan, Pekiti Tersia, Inayan Eskrima, Inosanto blend kali, Modern Arnis, etc...). To teach by seminar, or not. For many it is the only way to spread the art. However, there are of course all the problems that one can expect from so little teacher attention from students, but for many its the only way they can train in the arts. Ive seen some decent fighters come out this way, and some groups are pretty strict with it. But then there are alot who have very little understanding of the art. I suppose it boils down to what you want from the art, your own dedication to it, and your actual talent. Also, some groups have some pretty strict long distance rules. Meaning, you can take the classes, but theyll only progress as you actually learn. Also most do require some one on one training. However, I personally am not a DB fan, and I am not fond of seminar type students.
