Would going off into the mountains to train with the Ultimate Master™ of whatever fighting discipline and thus become the Ultimate Master™ yourself actually produce a skilled fighter?

Can you get legitimate fighting experience in a controlled environment, or is there a limit to how much you can learn in the classroom?
