Global Martial Arts University Terms and Conditions

The Global Martial Arts University, a division of Hodgy LLC, requires that all students read and agree to the following terms of use, subscription, copyright statements, statement of limited liability, and warnings. The Global Martial Arts University may also be referred to as: GMAU.

We invite our subscribers (students) to enjoy all the features this site has to offer. We require that each subscriber (student) follow and abide to our terms of use for the best and highest good of all. A failure to abide by these rules can result in immediate termination of access to this site, without a stated refund or recourse.

Terms of Use

1. Do not share your account credentials (email and password) with anyone. A student membership is for one individual. Our system will detect multiple logon attempts, and will put you at risk of having your account terminated.

2. Do not reprint, republish, repost, or otherwise distribute or transmit content presented on this site. Unauthorized use of or copying of our content, trademarks, and other proprietary material can subject you to civil or even criminal liability. We ask that you do not violate our copyright.

3. You agree to be made finable via our geographic Student Locator, and receive communications from other subscribed students to the site. Any meetings, training sessions, or practice with other Global Martial Arts University students are in no way related or managed by the site. The Global Martial Arts University disclaims all liability from any in-person meetings that you might setup on your own, through using the site’s Messaging and Student Locator features.

4. No advertising, trading of goods or services, or other commercial use is allowed in the membership section of the website, whether through person to person communication or on a public forum.

5. Please use your own name when posting to the discussion forums. Do not impersonate anyone else.

6. Treat other students with respect when posting messages to public forums and discussion pages. Abuse, name-calling, or maliciousness is not allowed.

7. Do not use vulgarity, obscenity, profanity, ethnic slurs, hate speech, or sexually explicit language in any written, verbal, or video communications. Do not harass or threaten other students in the forums, discussion pages, and person-to-person messages to other students or with your instructor. No libeling or defamation is allowed.

8. When you post content in the student forums, discussion boards, or other public avenues on the site, you permit this site to display and distribute the content, and to use it for advertising and promotion. You grant to this site the complete, perpetual, but non-exclusive right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, sub-license, etc. the content in whole or in part, throughout the world and universe, on a royalty-free basis.

We reserve the right to edit or remove any postings in public student forums or discussion boards. The person posting a message is solely responsible for it, not this site. Violators may be permanently banned from using the forums, or even have their student memberships terminated.


A fixed-term subscription consists of “monthly tuition”, “quarterly tuition”, or “annual tuition”. The term of your subscription is set and may be modified to a different frequency, or cancelled by following our cancellation process. You shall enjoy the use of the Global Martial Arts University for the duration of the term. GMAU reserves the right to increase your monthly dues with a prior written notice. At the end of the term, your subscription will be automatically renewed for a further term of equal duration to the initial fixed-term and will be successively renewed in such manner, until you have given GMAU proper notice of cancellation.

Your subscription will be charged and billed in U.S. dollars.

Monthly automatic payments will be made on the same day every month from the original start date onwards. Quarterly automatic payments will be made every three months, from the original start date. Annual automatic payments will be made every twelve months, from the original start date. If you fail to pay your student tuition on the due date, the Global Martial Arts University reserves the right to remove your access to the GMAU site until the outstanding payment is received.

Another payment option is the Lifetime Membership. A lifetime membership lasts for the duration of 100 years, starting on the original date the payment is made. A lifetime membership is applicable while the Global Martial Arts University is in operation. If the business ceases to exist, your lifetime membership is no longer valid, and is not useable. There will be no refunds given on Lifetime or VIP Lifetime memberships.
