    For the MA's out there

    Rank has become something of joke in the MA world. I see a bunch of stooges bestowing rank upon each other simply for time served, rather than based on skill. In other words, many honorary belt degrees. Too many supposed Grand Masters and the like. It has become a joke.

    At least the MMA dudes can prove their prowess in the ring, but even their day will come to pass.

    What say the MA's out there?

    Master of Asskicking.

    That most MA schools are McDojos is an old complaint.

    I read that and thought it WAS about academic degrees, until I read more.

    "Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight." (Psalm 144:1) Motto (yes, really) of a legal , unaccredited school offering academic degrees in Martial Arts.

    Who's gonna argue with them?
