    Looks like it's heavily biased towards asian martial arts.

    How would you do any research on it? Trying to research martial arts history is a nightmare, since it's all testicle-riding hearsay about how great some dead guy was. It would be like trying to write a history of Andrew Jackson based only on the legends or something.

    i guess this is one way to legitimize your mcdojo\bullshido club
    if you have a good head intead of a good body :5badair:

    but really do we need graduates in Ma better than if people who have graduated
    in archeology or history or something like that ?social antropolgy? maybe
    reasearch it with no ma background then we wont here the ridiculus claims

    all ma came from china.
    al ma comes from brazil
    all ma comes from india or greece or something equally stupid

    (btw yes i believe some styles thoughts and ideas are being moved from country to country i also believe that all nations ,cultures are able to discover ma
    and war for them self.) :icescream

    Keep in mind that BU (Bridgeport University) is run by the Moonies, so anything coming out of there should be looked at with a critical eye.

    "University of Bridgeport – licensure of a program in Martial Arts Studies
    leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree

    RESOLVED that the Board of Governors approve the licensure of a program in
    Martial Arts Studies leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree, to be offered by the
    University of Bridgeport, for a period of two years, from November 1, 2004
    through October 31, 2006. It is further recommended that the University
    provide an interim progress report, due October 31, 2005, detailing its success
    in the following:

    Recruitment and employment of full-time faculty members who have
    appropriate backgrounds in psychology, kinesiology, sports psychology,
    and related fields;

    Ensuring greater diversity of martial arts offerings in the curriculum,
    including enhancement of course work in the psycho-social aspects of
    the martial arts;

    Fulfillment of the University’s expressed commitment to increase library
    holdings in East Asian studies and martial arts;

    Development of a framework for the ongoing evaluation of the program."


    It is under a 2 year evaluation period that ends in October 31, 2006. If it bothers us, someone should right a letter to the accreditation board. Telling them of the problems with most Martial History.

    It looks like someone brought this up because they are still on probation. It also says the board wants a bigger diversity of MA besides TKD.

    That's a good idea, actually, to send a letter to their board. Perhaps I'll do it in about a week.

    What I'd like to see is the syllabus for these programs. I've pulled down the program of study (http://www.bridgeport.edu/pages/3871.asp) and given it a quick once over. Unfortunately there are no course particulars or reading lists on there so I can't comment about the content.

    If they do decide to post anything then we can do a real once over (I may e-mail them for info as well).

    Personally the connection to the Korean Martial Colleges don't bode well from what I've read about them.

    I found some more intresting information......

    Naropa University

    They offer a Minor in martial arts....


    This one actully looks kind of legitimate....?

    University of Indiana
    Another University of Indiana link

    I also found a quote from someone who took the program there....

    Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana has one of the largest martial arts programs in the country. They (as of a year or so ago) didn't have an actual B.A. program yet, but they were setting one up.

    They did have a teaching certificate however, as well as a martial arts minor. It involved several classes in the business of running a school, athletic medicine, kinesiology, some martial arts history and culture classes, and of course classes in at least two martial arts, one of which you had to get your black belt in. The main martial art taught there was TKD, but the Hapkido school was quite large as well, and they also have quite active Judo, Tai Chi, Kali, Jeet Kune Do, Japanese Jiu-jitsu, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, and probably another martial art or two that they have introductory classes to that I'm forgetting about. Oh yeah, Aikido comes to mind.

    I took most of the martial arts they offered, came darn close to the black belt in TKD (Red belt), but didn't take the sports medicine, running a school type classes, though I assistant teach beginner classes under the sensei of the head of the whole multi-art program, Master Burns.

    For those who wanted competition, they sent teams out, for those into the spirituality and history, they had classes in meditation, qi gong, Reiki, yoga, and healing arts, and for those who just wanted to beat folks up real bad, they had unofficial sparring get-togethers conveniently off campus......

    all in all, quite an impressive program I thought, though of course you got out what you put in.
