I haven't looked into the distance learning. But I am sure anything that Seldin Shihan is involved in is going to be quality.
I was very curious the first time I had contacted him when I found out he held the title of Shihan and his "studio" was called a dojo. All these things I thought that were "martial arts terms" are applied to many different arts.
I hope you can pursue some training with him any way you can. If you make contact, please tell him Jim Mc Coy referred you.
