A World Leading Distance Training Online Martial Arts University, Since 2008
Our association first began offering Distance Training courses in 2008. We were on the cutting edge of organized curriculum, white to black belt training programs, video rank exams, instructor support, and a simple way to learn and train at home. Fast forward to 2016. Black Belt at Home offers some of the most well-thought out, easy to learn from, practical for home study, hand’s on instructor support, and an overall home study ranking system that works. We now offer home training courses in Krav Maga, Shotokan Karate, Bo, Nunchakus, and Tai Chi. We are constantly improving the home study experience for our global students. We would love to have you training with us!
LEARN – Complete Courses Specifically Designed for Home Study
Our complete white-to-black belt courses were designed with you in mind. All techniques/material are taught with multiple angles, clear audio, intuitive follow along, step-by-step, and review sections. Most of our courses include home training classes and home practice drills as well. You will receive the complete curriculum on DVDs or streaming video, in a very easy to learn from format. Our courses are setup in a sequential, step-by-step format, and can be added into your current fitness and martial arts regimen. You will receive a home study manual with a history of the style, how to test, rank requirements, best practices for training at home, and more useful content during your journey. Our programs are perfect for training at home for personal learning, or for earning rank. It is not a requirement to take the rank exams and earn rank, but this is something that we offer.
TRAIN – With Real Instructor Support + Feedback
Upon joining a course, you will receive an email with information on communicating directly with your instructor. If you have questions about techniques, the testing process, etc. – you can email your instructor, or post it to the Student Forum. After submitting your video rank exam, your instructor will do a complete grading, and record a feedback video just for you – with constructive comments, tips, and corrections. This gives you the opportunity to make adjustments and improvement during your training. Krav and Karate students will also get periodic reviews and feedback from their online student journal. Your instructor is there for you, just like you would expect in a physical dojo.
EARN REAL RANK – Accredited Rank & Level Certifications
The rank earned through our Distance Training University is the same accreditation as that issued to students in one of our physical/local training centers. The standards, rank requirements, grading rubric, and minimum training hours are all up to par. If anything, we expect our home study students to push themselves even harder, and are going to need a higher level of self-discipline to succeed. The rank earned through our Distance Training courses is recognized by the Association of Martial Artists World Wide, the Ultimate Training Martial Arts Association, as well as various smaller groups and schools.
DVD + Streaming Editions Available
Our courses are available in a hard copy DVD edition, streaming video edition, or a combo of both. The DVD edition course is easy to use, watch, and as simple as popping in the DVD. Our streaming edition can be accessed instantly after purchasing. You can stream all training videos on your TV, computer, iPad, iPhone, or android device simply through the browser or one of our apps. You can also get the DVDs + Streaming Combo: get instant streaming access, along with a hard copy of the DVDs mailed to you.
Designed for Anyone – Current Martial Artists, Complete Beginners, Instructors
Our training courses are used by just about anyone with an interest in learning martial arts and improving themselves. We have students who are currently attending a martial arts school, who want to learn a new art that is not available in their area. We have students who are black belts already, looking to learn a new style, and even become certified instructors through our association. And we have white belt beginners, who use our course for the convenience and simplicity. All ages, walks of life, and physical capabilities are welcome to join us. Our students come from all around the world, from India, to Brazil, to the UK – and everywhere in between!
A Supportive Online Student Community
As a student in our University, you have access to the Student Forum and soon, the “Find a Partner” application. You can ask questions among one another, learn from each other’s unique experiences, find a training partner, and develop a sense of camaraderie as you go through our programs.
A Self-Paced Program
You can train as fast or as slow as your schedule permits. There are no set enrollment/test/completion dates. The more often and higher intensity you train, naturally, the quicker you can move through a program. Either for testing or just for your own training enjoyment/betterment. Our courses work really well for individuals with odd working hours, travelers, and for those that do not live near a training facility.
Continuous Improvement for Our Students
As a leading Distance Training University, we are on a constant quest to make improvements for our students. We have new training benefits and experiences set to release as the year goes on. By enrolling now, you get these upgrades and improvements as they come along. Our goal is to create the world’s most realistic, useful, integrity-filled, beneficial, innovative, and student-focused home study university.
