    Default Martial Arts as Degree!!!

    This is already over on MT, but I wanted to post a vid clip form our local news channel. University of Bridgeport now offers a MA degree. How cool is that?

    TKD and Tai Chi.....what? No Kenpo! LOL.

    Actually, I think a degree in "Martial Arts" would require study in at least one art that is sport oriented, one that is internal, and one that is self-defense. As well as a focus on philosophy and education.

    At least it's a start. SGM Parker has been quoted as saying he thought that the study of martial arts should be considered the same pursueing a college degree.
