Introductory Bo Course

"I never thought about taking an on line course before, especially a martial arts course. But I'm extremely happy that I did. The bo staff training is amazing! The instruction is outstanding! It's actually better than being in an actual class. It's like having a personal trainer with the ability to rewind and review the classes until you learn every piece of the material. I literally can't wait to open my laptop everyday and go back to class! I'd honestly rate this course a 10 out of 10!"

What Our Students

are Saying...

Ultimate Bo and the GMAU have been an awesome experience for me. The flexibility to fit martial arts classes into my busy schedule via internet learning has allowed me to train on my own time and at my own pace. The Ultimate Bo classes are a great upper body workout. I am looking forward to increasing my skills and training after taking a short break due to a work related injury. With the GMAU I was also able to review and visually learn a lot during my recovery. I would highly recommend Ultimate Bo or another GMAU course to anyone wanting to learn martial arts.

I have been involved in the martial arts (primarily traditional Korean karate, self defense, and Modern Arnis) for about 20 years and have trained with several different instructors and organizations. I have also been running my own small karate school since 2007. So I've had a lot of time and data to consider while thinking about what it means to be a good instructor, a good program and a good organization in the martial arts.

I am enrolled in several GMAU programs (currently, I'm active in Ultimate Bo and Krav Maga) and all the GMAU instructors that I have come into contact with are top notch. It's clear that they love what they do and that they have thought deeply about their GMAU program and about trying to provide the best experience possible for students. All of the instructors appear to be very active and fully engaged as students in the arts that they teach, which is important because they can better understand their student's experience.

In the programs that I am involved in, I regularly see new material, reworked material and extra material - which tells me that each instructor is working hard to find new ways to improve and enrich the experience of their students. Finally, even though they have reached a high level in their own art, every instructor is very approachable.

All of the staff that I have come into contact with are friendly and responsive.

Michael Hodge and his team have put together an outstanding experience for those who have chosen the martial arts to pursue personal growth and development. All of the elements are there. The timing is right for GMAU, in our current situation and in the future. If it works for your lifestyle and for your learning style, give GMAU a try!

What GMAU has put together is an all encompassing, fully realized bojutsu system. Throughout the curriculum, nearly 30 traditional techniques are taught and thoroughly explained. These techniques are contained within the (currently) 7 GMAU bojutsu kata. The bojutsu kata are original, dynamic and challenging, each with its own flavor. Parallel to the traditional techniques is the Ultimate Bo combat system. This combat system is practical and relevant incorporating true fighting techniques drawn from numerous cultures and long stick fighting styles.
Ultimate Bo is not 'tricking' or flashy in comparison to other systems. It is a true and outstanding martial art that can stand on its own as a combat system or complement an empty hand martial discipline.

The instructors are always available to answer questions and lend guidance to your progress.
The website is simple to navigate with every resource available at all times.

The curriculum is organized in such a way that one technique builds upon the next, from the foundation of stances and movement to advanced techniques such as spinning and traditional Okinawan kata.

Simply put, Ultimate Bo is incredible. It is fun, challenging and rewarding. I cannot more highly recommend GMAUs Ultimate Bo curriculum.

Joining GMAU has truly been a positive experience for me. I have stayed fit, engaged and find a sense of community and purpose within the practice.

I started training in Ultimate Bo during (COVID) quarantine, due to increasing free time and my looking for Bo training. GMAU was a pleasing surprise, and the course itself as well! I am really enjoying that as part of my training and life!

Ultimate Bo meets most of the requirements my doctors have told me to do as an older man:
1) Keep learning new things to exercise your brain (learning the different forms and techniques at each level); 2) Stay physically active and lose weight to stop the body from stiffening up (practicing the forms over and over again until they are committed to muscle memory definitely keeps me active); 3) Do something I enjoy (by doing so, I believe I will do it for life as long as my body will allow me.
