    My understanding is there is little regulation and no quality control on most Soju, so you could be getting anything from cough syrup to pure grain alcohol
    Really? That's interesting considering theres so much regulation around absinthe. Absinthe is illegal here in the US right? In england its legal up until a percentage of about 72% alcohol i think. I've heard it can go even higher in eastern europe though.

    Any ideas why soju doesn't come under similar regulation?

    in some parts of the U.S. there is a limit on alcohol percentage. Everclear is illegal in California, but legal in Arizona, I believe. The strongest you can have here in Cali is 151 proof, or 75.5% alcohol. Everclear is like what, 180 proof?

    Swearing idiots is all you are. Eternal Grandmaster Lee was a pioneer and ten times the martial artist ANY of you EVER WILL BE! He created alot of Taekwondo! The people in the video were getting their instructor's collars AFTER going to instructor's camp and doing ALOT of things to get there! The future of ATA and I'm proud to say that I'll join them one day!

    Stop hijacking my thread with swearing, porno talk, and liquor!

    For YOUR information ATA is the ONLY organisation that has the professional standards the rest of you wouldnt be able to live up to. The voice in the background is from the Scrolls Of Songahm. I bet your organization doesn't even have anything like that! LOSERS!

    Ok folks, I'm not super keen on the ATA save for what I've read here....but from this person and the footage he posted, its starting to seem like a cult organization.

    Am I just reading too much into it or do they come off as cultish?

    Gotta be a troll...
    Though if this guy is anything like some of the ATA and ITA morons I have met or heard about in my area, his attitude is not unheard of.

    Lots of tough talk, no follow-through....

    How do you know? Have you specifically met and compared our credentials to your grandmaster? There's quite a few amateur and professional fighters on here, as well as martial arts instructors in a variety of different styles (wing chun to judo, and from BJJ to kenpo). Many of the others train in full-contact MAs and have proven themselves at Throwdowns to show their martial prowess. Hence why a long boring video of people wildly flailing their arms around in an epileptic-like fit and who after becoming an instructor still cannot remember their forms is amusing to us.

    The people in the video were getting their instructor's collars AFTER going to instructor's camp and doing ALOT of things to get there!
    Besides driving there and paying a few thousand dollars to get said collars, what else did they do?

    Hence why ATA will be doomed to be the eternal laughingstock of the TKD world.

    I'll do whatever the **** I want. As for the porno and licquor:

    And what professional standards are those? And specifically, compared to who? How professional is it to have instructors who can't perform the techniques they're supposed to instruct their students in? An organization that will take any schmuck off the street and give them a high ranking within same organization is far from being considered to have professional standards.

    One question I have: does ATA spar at all? If so, is it just the point fighting BS?

    I walked by an ATA "Black Belt Academy" once and they had a 15 year old brown belt teaching class..... High Standards?
    How long does it take to get a BB in your school and what is the test like?

    If your wondering why every one is making fun of the ATA:
    Answers here

    I never see the ATA at any competitions, weather it is Karate point style, continious piont or Olympic TKD... What gives?

    His name has 30 in it. I wonder if thatís his age. Yet he acts like a 13 year old. But I still got to ask myself if this guy evens knows what this site is about. Iím sure he does. No one is this stupid to come here. Heís a throll. But I hope we can keep him around for comedic purposes.

    Either he's a troll or the ATA is a lot like the church of scientology.
