I noticed that a number of instructors on the websites above had Ph D's in MA. What exactly is that and where does one go to school to get it? Just curious.

That's the point David. You don't go to school to get one per se. You get one by being in the arts a set amount of time and achieving a certain rank (apparently it's ok to award it to yourself). I don't know how they get by with it since most states regulate the granting of such titles. I think I'd be embarrassed to call myself doctor of the martial arts.
