Style: TKD, soon BJJ JUDO
I was looking aroung one day on the internet and stumbled across the American College of Martial Science.
I was wondering if this place was truely legit?
i am not sure about their programs or their accredidation.
it seems that this is a scheme to make money. but i am not sure. some things that make me wonder is.
1. you cannot get a transcript unless you finish a degree.
2. there is not a cost per credit hour there is only a cost per program. you pay for your masters degree up front. no refunds period.
3. no listed professors or any biographical info on their deans or their president.
I respect this colege but am wondering what their credentials are.
i agree with their statement of faith, but i feel that they are doing their statement fo fait a disservice by not giving people this information.

in the case of some other martial arts organizations they atleast give you some valueable infromation in this ase you are paying for a service that is truely never rendered.
Go to www.acms.edu to review their programs

That's the point, there are NO laws agianst what "Ronald McDojo" is doing, there's nothing we can do except expose the frauds and let the general public know what's going on.

yes there is
that is just it. it is called F R A U D
especially when you claim to be an educational institution. there is something that should be trustworthy. and not to be taken advantage of.

I feel that like credentialing doctors or lawyers or other professionals. we are dealing with lives in the martial arts. theese things can potentially hurt and maime people secondly they are designed to help protect people. i feel that those who teach us should have to get credentials

I am an instructor trainee in the American Taekwondo Association and you are taught how to teach people and how to properly teach people some martial arts if you are a black belt you are automatically made an instructor. just because you can kick great doesent mean that you are going to be a great teacher. same token you can be a genius in mathematics but that doesent mean that you have the gifting to teach others multiplication,
