FACE-OFF FRIDAY: Earning Rank Online

IT'S FACE-OFF FRIDAY!

There are many instructors, both well-regarded and... let's say, questionable, to put it kindly, who offer not only supplemental training but offer training for rank in the martial arts via online or video instruction only.

Is this a legitimate way to study the martial arts and earn rank?  I'd love to know what you think.


Are ranks earned via online/video instruction only legitimate?
