No. The course is simply for informational and educational purposes. You will still need to follow instructor qualification process, which can be at home/online. This includes training as a student in the Global Martial Arts University Ultimate Bo program, so that you first master the material.
Well, you first need to be at least a blue chevron ranked student in Ultimate Bo, before you take the instructor exam. To reach blue chevron can take anywhere from 6-9 months in most cases, but it is a completely self-paced program. You will also need to enroll and complete the Certified Martial Arts Teacher course as a pre-requisite. If you are already a blue chevron or above, the actual instructor testing process only takes 1-2 months.
No! We charge no additional monthly or yearly fees to maintain your active instructor status with the GMAA. You will be required to have an active student membership with the Global Martial Arts University, to continue your own personal training, and be connected in to the growth and evolution of the style. But, there are no fees specifically tied to the business side of your school’s bo program.
We have been working with home study/online students for 10 years now, and have constantly improved our training systems, and raised our standards. This is not about giving our instructor certificates that are worthless. The Global Martial Arts Association has worked hard to build up and protect its reputation by always maintaining high quality standards of instruction, values, and actions.
We have found that videos, messages, and good communication can allow for us to properly evaluate and train individuals to be outstanding martial artists, and instructors.
