• Possess an associate or bachelor's degree in physical education, exercise science, exercise physiology or adult fitness.

I never fail to be amazed by the wide-eyed adoration that people have for a college diploma. Apparently, there is no job in the world so simple that it can be done without continued education. As someone who has been working in the IT industry for nearly 20 years without a college education, I can only quote the Perl motto: There's More Than One Way To Do It.

I have to agree with CoryKS. They should find another option other than this one

While I think there are way to many unqualified people teaching martial arts, and are doing damage and harm to their students while doing it, I would think a better approach would be old style Kung fu theater challenge death matches....

Mr. Joe Bob....master ninja of the 19th degree.... i think your kung fu is weak!! I think you are a fake... I challenge you to the death.......

you know... the good old days.....
or at least it used to be when I was a kid watching sunday morning kung fu theater....

Link doesn't seem to be working now -- but it's coming. In Virginia and a couple of other states, they've started with Yoga instructors via programs that advertise becoming an instructor. It's being treated as professional training -- and I'm sure martial arts "black belt instructor" programs are going to be targeted under the same reasoning.

Of course, on the plus side, this'll end up restoring the distinction between a black belt and an instructor...
