"Nothing like learning a useful martial art from your living room. Sounds ridiculous I know, but it works... Even if it's just 10 minutes a day it's amazing how fast you progress."

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.

Muhammad Ali
GMAU Nunchaku Student

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.

Will Fecowycz
GMAU Nunchaku Student

With this course, it is easier to learn because I can watch the video many many times and to have the possibility to repeat which part that was more difficult.

Today I work also with two weapons and it is even more beautiful because I train simultaneously using both arms and I also train my concentration. For a few months I managed to train almost every day for about 1 hour and thanks to that I defeated my sore it is really like zero!!
