    guys, come on, this dude is clearly a troll. we must concentrate our efforts on more important matters, like hot storm troopers performing very valued fan service to the geek community.

    "Certification Ceremony
    On Saturday July 9th 2005 I had an honor bestowed upon me that was almost too good to be true.

    Myself, Ms. Morgan Baker, Mr. Nick Drew and Mrs. Leslie Blakeway all took part in the Certified Instructor's Ceremony at Mr. Goins school. On that night we officially became a Certified Instructor.

    I must tell you that it was both an exciting and humbling experience.

    When I joined the ATA a little under 3 years ago I never imagined that it would change my life the way it has.

    The ceremony consisted of 9 phases which were very symbolic in nature.

    I have created a video of the event and will post a link to it once I receive permission from my Instructor to do so.

    UPDATE

    Here is the link to the video. Enjoy!!

    Not very nice language for a refined lady such as yourself.

    I look at my black collar with more than I do at getting my 1st, heck even my 2nd. The amount of perseverance and hard work that went into both my red and my black collars surpassed anything I've had to do at any rank testing.

    Don't get me wrong, my racing stripe will be one great day (Note to Masters: I've planned on achieving this goal at Spring Nationals, please let me know if I'm being presumptuous). But, those collars were both events that will stick with me until I die.

    The red collar was in front of EGM Lee on his trip to our humble little town in the 80's. The second was standing alongside my friends, being judged by my friends, nearly 20 years later.

    An event? For me it was.

    Watching Mr. Steward and the rest of Mr. Goins students/instructors was... Inspiring, to cut it down to one word, INSPIRING?!?!?! .

    SM Kohl asked Mr. Goins students to step forward in our group.... And then there were 3. Yep, like 70% of the Level 3's were from that school (some just taking the course, but holy cow what a showing).

    To see the ceremony presented with such honor to the new instructors was a phenomenal thing. Mr. Goins, Sir, thank you for showing such a shining example of how a senior can show honor, courtesy and respect towards his juniors.

    Truly a great insight into the ATA Northwest schools.

    It could be anywhere from one day to six months. Yes, I've ran in to people who have tried to make their training longer. As if 3 is really any better than 2 in Crappy Mcdojo years.
