People were happy that they brought in someone who was reasonably qualified to teach grappling.
Work on your reading comprehension, so others don't have to hold your hand on the internet.
BJJ is also the most complimentary of typical MMA arts to TKD because they deal with entirely different combat phases.
I have trained with a purple belt in bjj it was the first time I have ever been worked by a man 15 lbs lighter then me. he traines under pedro sauer. alot of respect for those guys!(I come from a wrestling background with some submission training just for the record)

TKD School + MMA Class with NO Qualified Instructors = Money Making Gimmick.
My thoughts exactly.
