    No, you read right.

    Last year i paid approx $300 for 10 hours of riding lessons (grooming, saddling, mucking and general education not included in the 10 hours.) I guess that this taught me more about combat than the ATA MMA ever will, as horses likes to test you in the box by bumping into you - so you must stand you ground, cleaning the hooves is sticky business, riding builds stamina and general strength, etc, etc.

    Of course you can't be cruel to your horse, but since horses don't understand complex verbal commands, it's pretty much a question of determination. Now, the McDojo can fool people to think that they have built lots of skills. (Well, duh!) But no one can fool you to think that a ungroomed horse is a groomed horse, etc.

    Correct...and unless they've changed the belt meanings, it represents the pine tree (that's the student) growing up through the other trees, 'fighting' it's way to the sunlight.

    Fighting...sparring. See what they did there?

    I take tkd,and I am hanging my head in shame over this.
    My association is not the ata but this is ridiculous it is just another version of the "black belt club" pay 300 dollars and get a cert to train mma.I have met ata ppl they have some pretty kicks but as a yellow belt in kenpo I could hold my own against an experienced ata'er(one said he was a blackbelt but did not show proof of it)maybe that organization should start listening to their members instead of trying to please the whiners in the group and start training some real life situations for their members.Then maybe they can start climbing out of the hole of being the laughing stock of ma.

    It had to happen - just a matter of time.

    So, they have a video of the seminar up:

    YouTube - ATA MMA - Mixed Martial Arts

    I'll leave it to people who know something about grappling (ie not me) to comment.

    not enough footage to make an opinion. The wrestling I saw looked OK. I want to see footage of their BJJ though.
