Has anyone ever heard of USMAI international or Grandmaster San Yoon? I know a person who held a 2nd Dan in Taekwondo for under one year and submitted his package to Grandmaster Yoon and he was awarded a 4th Dan and a Master Instructor certificate. I know that the minimum time in the ITF to go from 2nd Dan to 4th Dan is five years. Any information on the USMAI International or Grandmaster San Yoon would be helpful. The website is www.usmai.com if anyone would like to check it out.
Here's an idea: how about you check it out. While you're at it, why don't you name the guy you "know" too?

All in all it looks like a certification mill, but was wondering if anyone had any other information on them. The person I know is Alan Roberts of Victory TKD South.
Oh and I forgot, do not post questions in the investigative forum without reading the rules. If you read them you will see that it is not a place for "have you heard" type questions. That is why your thread was moved.
