Commonly Asked Questions:
 
 
Q: How long does it take before I am eligible to test?
A: There are no time limits to test! As soon as you have learned the material visit the "Testing" section and follow the procedure.
 

Q: Can you really learn from Videos?
A: Yes...That is why Instructional Videos have always been in demand for decades!
 

Q: Is earning your certification by video legitimate?
A: Yes! People even earn various college degrees through various legitimate online university sites all of the time! As long as you practice & learn the material with a partner/partners there is no issue. Historically there are known cage fighters that initially used videos and trained with partners out of their garage and made it all of the way to the UFC! Obviously most competitors train in a class setting...
 

Q: Can I see a sample certificate?
A: No! Due to people forging etc. All certificates are 8 1/2 X 11 inches.
 
 
Q: When I pass my Video Test do I receive a Certificate or an actual Belt?
A: You recieve a Certificate with The Belt/Instructor Rank stating the level that you attained!
 
 
Q: In what format do I send you my Test?
A: You can send your Test via: DVD, YouTube, VHS, VHS-C, Etc.
 

Q: Can someone with no previous experience learn from these videos?
A: Yes, but it is better if you have previous experience! These courses are not a substitute for in person training, however it is a great & easy way to learn and earn your black belt at your own pace and in the privacy of your home!
 
 
Q: Is there a seperate Test Fee per belt level or is it one Test Fee from White Belt to the Black Belt level?
A: There is only one Test Fee from White to Black Belt!


Q: Does the certificates say; "DVD certification" or "Certified by DVD"?
A: NO! It is a legitimate certification of a belt/instructor rank earned!
 
 
Q: Do I need a "Partner" to train in these courses?
A: This will be a Yes & No Answer...Obviously Yes if you want to reach your "Full Potential" in order to see if you can handle sparring or doing dills with partners is the best way to have a reality check on what you can truly do!

No, If you simply want to go at your own pace by hitting a Heavy Bag by yourself or using a Training Dummy, Grappling Dummy etc. and want to see some improvement but you are not critical of the outcome!
 
 
 
Q: Can I send my Video Test without  using a Partner?
A: If for some reason you can not find a partner during the time you wish to video tape your test and you have learned all of the material you may perform it like a Kata or use any training equipment (Grappling Dummy, Heavy Bag etc.)!
