    Fantastic work, I appreciate all you've put into it. I know I wouldn't have the patience to listen to him at length, that kind of person makes me want to throw down regardless of my lack of training.

    Strange.... I didn't know there was Taekwondo from any other origin???? .... and it's from a Karate club...... sounds BS to me

    A first step might be to remove anything that shows the title of "MASTER" in relation to him.... then remove all the garbage claims that he can't prove

    I eagerly await the response from Coda's group, or at the very least their version of the meeting.

    Exactly! I just do not know how anyone could confuse Jr. ROTC and Paris Island! That is why I think that he lied to you and that his statement was not some kind of miscommunication. I am glad that you were at the meeting, and I am sorry that this cost you and United Martial Arts a place to train.

    I see a hall of fame tag for Dai. This write-up was top notch, boy-o, and everybody knows it. Props, son, mad props.

    Is their anything they can say? We have the video and we know what Coda said. I think the next step will be condensing all of this down into an article for the Newspress and the O’Colly.

    It did not cost me a place to train, I have my own school, I just visited his school because he invited me & I was curious about his school & his Style. If UMA needs a place to train, I invited them to Coyle.

    Can you comment at all on whether his class enrollment has changed as a result of the public discussion?

    I don't expect to see a change for a little while yet. Coda does come off as a nice, honest guy; people who have already put their trust in him are not going to just drop him right off, not most of them, regardless of our findings. I imagine they'll each want to talk to him about this, some he'll manage to keep, hopefully more will realize what's going on.

    That and less than a week is not enough time to see the true weight of what's going on.
