The ATA has a whole bunch of 'masters'. Has anyone here trained with any of them and does anyone know what merits they have?
I'm asking because I've attended a seminar with senior master Steven Westbrook, who seemed like a badass. Though to someone with only 3 months of TKD as MA experience at the time I was probably not very hard to impress. He taught the ATA Protech 'groundfighting' system, which he claimed to have developed in collaboration with the Gracie family.
My TKD-instructor has a level 1 certificate in this 'groundfighting' and his grappling skills are..
(in my triangle) "Oh but I could gouge your eyes out from here".
