Frequently Asked Questions

How does testing work?

We have a very simple process for testing students, which uses a video rank exam format; with detailed testing standards and an instructor feedback loop. Click on the banner below to learn about the process.

How long do I have to wait between rank advancements?

The first two levels of each of the DT programs have no minimum wait. We believe that those who work hard deserve to advance quickly instead of waiting around for no reason. Likewise you have no limit on how long between; you can take as long as you need before your exam. After the first two levels of rank the minimum wait varies; from a minimum wait of one month and above. This allows us to maintain integrity in the style.

Do you have to pay a fee for each rank exam?

Yes. Rank exams are $60 each for yellow – green chevron, and $70 each for blue – red chevron. First of all, the fee covers the time and energy that your instructor takes out working with you and grading your exam. Your instructor will take out a good chunk of time to study your exam, grade it, make detailed notes, and work back and forth with you in communication. The fee also covers the actual certificate of rank, and the mailing of this certificate and chevron patch to your address. The more advanced levels require more intricate study, review, and time spent on communication.

What if I have questions that the training videos do not answer?

You have the ability to correspond with the Master Curriculum Instructor, Michael Hodge, at any time via e-mail or phone. You can also sign up for Private Lessons with the Master a program that allows you to work one-on-one with the Master Instructor through a web cam or other utility; this will allow for the best instruction and advisement. Contact us for more details.

Can I seriously learn from a video?

Ultimate Training™ by Hodgyma has developed a revolutionary new video curriculum format which has proven results. Students learn as well, and in many cases better with our instructional DVDs. Of course, you have the ability to pause, rewind, and play any lesson chapter whenever you want – try doing that with an instructor at a local martial arts school.

Why should I choose Distance Training instead of a local martial arts school?

Many reasons.

  • You have the ability to train whenever, wherever
  • The program is self paced – test whenever you are ready
  • The Ultimate Bo Distance Training course is the only way in the world to earn a true black belt rank in the weapon of BO.
  • The Ultimate Chuks Distance Training course is the only way to earn a true black belt rank in the martial arts style – Ultimate Chuks – a uniquely recognized style mixing freestyle and sparring nunchakus.
  • The Ultimate Karate Distance Training course is the only way to earn a true black belt in the unique mixture style of mudokwan tae kwon do and shotokan karate.
  • You will literally save thousands of dollars in tuition and other fees.

Ultimate Chucks

The moment I have stepped into Sensei Michael Hodges virtual Dojo, I felt right at home.Even though I am in Malaysia and he is in USA, seems like there is no distance between us.His instructions are clear and easy to follow and his responses thru email are very quick.I am currently signed on for the Ultimate Bo Jutsu training along with the Ultimate Nanchucks program. After achieving my black belt status on these programs, I plan to follow thru with the Tai Chi program.I am quite impressed with the high quality of video and audio that goes with the recordings. Sensei Hodges demonstrates all the positions in a clear and concise manner and thru various positions, front, side and back views. I can easily follow allow and repeat the same movements.There is absolutely no difference, in my view, between GMAU online training and Dojo training.I currently hold a Black Belt in Ninjutsu.I enjoy furthering my training, and since I am a Work at Home Dad, I have time on my hands that allows me the flexibility to train daily. I can progress faster thru the ranks as compared to the once a week training schedules of the Dojo.I am grateful to Sensei Hodges and the Global Martial Arts University for providing this service that I may further my training.Thank you so much,regardsMuhammad Ali

Ultimate Chuks Review

I have been training in martial arts for several years, and this program has given me some great new material to learn! I have some experience with traditional nunchaku work, but not much with freestyle/modern techniques. This course is easy to follow with quality instruction that you can view as many times as needed. The best part, though, is the feedback from Sensei Michael. He responds quickly and with detail to questions you ask via e-mail, and the personalized test video response is a great learning opportunity as well. I am very pleased with this course, and I look forward to continuing my training with Black Belt at Home and the Global Martial Arts University in the future.

Ultimate chucks home lessons feed back

Hi everybody !I want to share my chucks home training experience.First I want to say that distance training fits me fine as I feel very free to practice whent I have time !Of course It's very important to practise regularly, 1/2 hour 4 days a week cant be enough.Chucks can be physically challenging but for the learning and the warm up it is possible to practise "tai-chi" like movements.I started this course in 2014 and I am preparing myself to the blue chevron test. I take my time, I really found the way to improve myself.Ahh of course, I confess that don't understand a lot of what Sensei says because I'm French and Texas accent is hell but... just have to watch, watch again and repeat the same movements.
