Jason -

I am not sure if I understand how academic learning will really help with the quality of someone's martial arts. They may be well informed historically, and know some useful physics, but if they are not getting adequate "mat time" (which your program does not seem to address), how can you be sure of their ability to apply their training?

Not to be pedantic or minimize academic pursuit (that's why I'm here on the forum), but MA is a physical endeavor at it's core. How do you seek to maintain focus (quality) in that regard?
