Thread: Certified ATA instructor

Hey, the ATA can use the flames, regartless.
On the video's content:
That sucked. Those people shouldn't be blackbelts, period, if their forms are any indication of skill. And the woman? Pah. That was a goddamn joke. She looked like a first month student.
On the video's production: There's a program on almost every fucking windows PC called "Windows Movie Maker."
It ain't final cut by a long shot, but it could be used to chop GIANT FUCKING CHUNKS of nothing happening out of that.
Production 3/10 (you could still see it and it showed everything)
Poster 2/10 (probably strangler but not Djimbe)

Actually, I'm used to TKD bashing on the thread, but what makes ATA so much worse? I haven't seen any ATA specific bashing before. And what does ATA stand for? Theres a dojang here but the A is for Australian so I don't think its the same one :P
And ... ugh... that was pretty bad =/ Well its just a ceremony, so I guess we aren't meant to see deadly TKD power in this clip anyway.

Dude, I was around when the ATA was created by guys who coudn't hack the ITF or WTF. Highest standards in the world for what exactly, giving rank to kids or adults for showing up to class and paying the monthly and test fees? ATA is for kids under 25 to think they actually EARNED their rank LOL.
My advice, run and get some decent training where there's some realism before you have your ass turned into a hat when the **** hits the fan.

I can't believe that this video was posted on this forum by someone thinking that this is real Martial Art.
It was embarassing to watch.

Even if the guy's trolling, this thread will serve as a reference around here if anyone searches on the ATA. I don't remember seeing an ATA specific thread, so it's an opportunity for people like JKDChick, Clyde, and others to go on the record about it.

I figured it was a troll, but I was having too much fun being mean.

Let me get this straight...
To be a certified instructor for the ATA, you need:
1. to be able to drink tea.
2. to be able to light a candle.
3. to be able to fold your clothes.
4. to have an inner ear infection.
