Earn Real Rank in Ultimate Chuks
Ultimate Chuks uses a unique ranking system - the chevron patch. Students will place the official Ultimate Chuks patch on the right sleeve of their uniform, and then each patch that is earned is placed in a descending fashion down the arm. This allows students who hold a rank in a traditional martial arts (such as Karate) to also wear their belt at the same time. Ultimate Bo students can display their rank in the same way, but on the left arm. A chevron patch holds the same weight/equivalency as a belt - it is simply a different way to visually display your standing in the style. You will also have an official certificate of rank mailed to you upon passing an exam.

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 Nunchucks 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
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.

A large majority of the training can be practiced solo. It is clearly beneficial to have a dedicated training partner when available, for working on the combat and sparring nunchaku techniques. We still find students who train solo are able to reach a high level of efficacy.
