Distance Learning Program
"Home Study Black Belt Course"

USA Self-Defense Centers Distance Learning Program is structured after the State University of New York's Empire State College division distance Learning Degree Program. This program permits you to earn your Bachelors or Masters Degree from an accredited University without attending class.

Our program will permit you to earn a Certified Black Belt from an accredited program. Credits can be transferred from other recognized styles of the Martial Arts to accelerate your Black Belt Program. A resume must be submitted with your application for evaluation of transfer credits.

If you already have your First Degree Black Belt (Shodan) you may register your Black Belt with us and enroll in our 2nd Degree (Nidan) program which will also earn your Teaching Certificate and enable you to promote students to Black Belt. Most Black Belts do not realize that they can not promote someone to their own level, only to one level below them.

Our Certified Program consists of Video Training, and Video and Written Testing. The program is geared to be positive in nature and intended to enable everyone to be successful and complete it. Our motto is "A Black Belt is a White Belt who Never Quit".
