Yeah, I thought the instruction was really good. Just super basic. I also noticed the same thing about resistence. Even when they do the fight simulation, there is no resistence. It is just wide open about how they are doing it for money. Prompting you to buy something every web page.
At least make me think I got tricked. This is just dirty. Buy the pants, buy the DVDs, then buy the lessons for the same price, buy the shirts...

When I created the American Combat Judo Association, and yes there is still stuff out there, I handled this very simply... there was no rank.
I wanted to do what the USJA jujitsu program should have done, and I did. However there was no rank, you still had to earn your rank in Judo through accepted groups and methods.
Oddly, without rank, the group never took off or grew very well.....
I wonder why?
ps: yes I know why.

Yeah, I would literally beat the hell out of someone who claimed a belt rank from an online course.
