    Teachers post education to share knowledge, inspire minds, and cultivate critical thinking. They empower students with tools for success, like a 49er starter jacket gold gleaming in the sunlight.

    I think they do it to wake the lazy children or students from their bad sleep, or for spreading the spirit of education everywhere. But on the other side, you go well and share the most amazing knowledge with Drive Jacket. Thanks a lot.

    Thank you for telling us why teachers post education. This is one of the best blog posts that you've published here. I work for a top resume writing services near me, and my colleagues will appreciate me when I share this information with them.

    People generally like to see a persons training and education regardless of if it's related or not. If writing a bio of yourself, regardless of profession, it's pretty common to list your education. And if you can call yourself doctor, it's good marketing to use the title because it's well respected. People will think you're dedicated and responsible.

    Some people like to see initials after a name. One person once told me if they don't have letters after their name, then why should he listen. That was just his preference and opinion. I personally don't think this way. I enjoy thinking and don't require things to be so simple.

    However, I have met so many people just fake, argue, complain through life. But fighting is different. I like to compare it to tasting food. If I have a chef and a cook creates a dish, I should be able to taste which is better regardless who has more experience, rank, etc.

    I have the same issue with lineage. Just because someone was taught by some famous teacher doesn't necessary mean the student is worth .25 cent. But their are so many people claiming self important because of their association with someone who is accomplished.

    Maybe people list thier education to show that they are dedicated to whatever it is they set out to achieve. Shows that they have discipline to finish school and not quit. I don't know, I'm just guessing.

    On a side note to this may I assume that the original first post was in reference to Grandmaster Sin The' of the Shaolin Do system? He lists his education and it just so happens to be in mechanical engineering.

Yet, if I'm opening a school of martial arts, why would I mention my M.Ed. since it has nothing to do with Chinese martial arts...has anyone else noticed this baffling trend in martial art schools?


    Probably has something to do with whatever motivated you to tell us all that about yourself.

    I have another QUESTION?

    Not to drag the topic off but in some (rare?) cases the opposite may be true...

    I wonder if a language barrier existed or out of courtesy for my ignorance I was spared much of the formality but a most talented master shared a great deal of skill without speaking about himself at all?

    No name? No style? No titles at all that I recall? There weren't even names for all the "things to do"...

    "It's a verb" he would say Or "do this" Like this, much attention to detail but mostly DOING. Not talking.

    I still find myself thinking I know things. I see them all the time. People talk about things A-LOT. There is much to learn. If you wanna call yourself professor, I don't care? Show me!

    You know?

    I think they do it because they seem to believe it somehow validates them as Martial Artists or teachers. It's lame as hell and one of the big warning signs of people living in a fantasy. People like this usually also have huge "I love me walls".

    Martial arts skills and the ability to teach them is demonstrated on the floor, not the wall.

    I think we may possibly be making a few unfair assumptions.

    People who study for years to achieve professional qualifications often quote them in their day to day lives, and why not, they earned them. We seem to be assuming that they are using them to further promote their ability in martial arts, which may not be the case, they may quote them everywhere and just be proud of their achievements. We also seem to be inferring that they are using these qualifications to compensate for a lack of ability in their chosen field of martial arts. I'm sure its possible for someone to be a good martial artist, a good teacher, and have good academic qualifications that they want share.

    Its hardly as if the world of martial arts is full of people who shy away from self promotion, is it?

    When you get a PhD you are a doctor!!
    Whilst they won't exactly be a doctor in the traditional sense, they are still entitled to have that title.

    Personally I think its sad. It reminds me of Red Dwarf and Arnold J Rimmer BSC SSC (Bronze Swimming Certificate and Silver Swimming Certificate)

    Does it mean that I should list my GCSE's and A-Levels on my website?

    I know that Leung Ting likes to be known as Dr Leung Ting
    And whilst I really don't like the fella, I know that his degree is more related to martial arts.

    Personally, I never believe any of that nonsense. My Sifu, Kevin Chan is an extremely well educated man and is very knowledgable in business/finance as well as knowing several languages. Yet, I go to him because he knows what he is doing in martial arts. And knows how to use wing chun effectively

    The trend started as a further extension of the I am a 10th dan, grandmaster, etc. The next thing was to add some sort of college degree afterwards. It has little to do with the martial arts instructors experience and merit and more a long the lines of commercial exploitation just another thing to use to sell and nothing more unfortunately. Expect more of it.
