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!"

are Saying...

My story, 50 years old French Canadian, arthritis in the neck, ex smoker, and gaining weight, time to get in shape! But work a lots and living out of town! Always wanted to learn Bojutsu, start to look around , lol! No way I could find a full Bojutsu training in Canada. I Start to look online, just curious, and I find GMAU Bojutsu with Sensei Hodge! I’m pretty skeptical about training online. I still give it a try. At my surprise, I was really amazed by the material of this online course, lessons, classes, assignment, testing, quality of teaching, exchanges with others student, discussion board. I was really surprise when I did my first video testing, and Sensei hodge reply to me by video! And you can tell, this course is not only about money, Sensei Hodge really care about his student , we are not just a number! I took a chance with this course, and I got no regret, I’m so happy and dedicated to the end! Black belt! I’m coming!

My wife and I have really enjoyed Ultimate Bo. The format is perfect for our schedules (and pandemic compatible) and the quality of instruction is excellent. Nathan Douglas and Michael Hodge are both great Senseis and role models for all of us on our martial arts journey. They are always willing to answer questions and provide feedback and are very engaged in the education of their students. The excellence of the course has motivated us to continue learning and eventually mastering the art of the staff. Thank you!

Helllo, my name is Heather and I am training for my Yellow Chevron. I enjoy the training very much. It is a good workout and I love to swing that Bo! I am a Third degree Black Belt I’m TaeKwonDo but my school does not offer any weapons trading. I was very excited to find Global Martial Arts University so that I could add to my martial arts training. Thank you Sensei Michael!

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 am a 3rd degree black belt in Shotokan Karate. I've been with GMAU for more than 2 years now, starting with Ultimate Bo, which I am currently still studying but I've also completed the Certified Martial Arts Teacher (CMAT) course. Since studying Ultimate Bo (UB) with the GMAU I must say that my life has honestly been transformed. I had always wanted to learn about the various weapon systems of Martial Arts but where I'm from (Trinidad and Tobago) it wasn't easy getting access to the training. Thankfully I came across an online add for UB and thus began my journey of studying the Bo staff. The beautiful thing about learning anything with GMAU is their attention to detail when teaching lessons. The instructors take their time and go step by step through every bit of each move, with varying angles to give you a sort of personal feel to each lesson. You also get real instructor feedback through videos and messages and you can also message your instructors with questions. It all comes together to give you a learning experience that is truly second to none. With the ability to learn at your own pace, re-watch lessons over and over and have personal interactions with your instructors, I can 100% recommend starting a course with GMAU.
