calibro saidself-teaching? i see you've already mastered this one...
Ah, the criticism from the multi-degreed academic elitist (yeah, I read that thread where you douchebragged about your degrees)
who sneers down his nose at people who have the temerity to go to state schools of ill-repute... or a least, schools without pedigrees as research institutions.
Because there is no such thing as "teaching yourself", it has to be certifiably qualified with elite credentials to be valid... Yeccch. Your douchbaggery is palpable and quite frankly, disgusting.
DISCLAIMER: Yeah, I'm not taking away from the premise that you can learn a discipline better if you have instruction from someone who has trained significantly longer and harder than you, or otherwise has a measurable record of success in his discipline - but the OP is looking to learn acrobatics for his own leisure. He's not looking to practice neurosurgery.
