    I posted on the thread I linked above, but it has to be approved by the mod before it will be posted...
    Let's see if I get through.

    Here's a good post from the forum link that sambosteve posted:

    "Could someone please explain to me what this program is. It is being offered at Spring Nationals. I am just returning to training in the ATA after a 2 year break and I am concerned about the direction the ATA is going. If the ATA MMA is what I see on Spike TV then I am going to mail my blackbelt certificate along with my black belt back to headquarters because I do not want to be part of an organization that allows that kind of violence."

    Martial arts... that are VIOLENT?! Not in MY ATA school!

    The hysterical poster talking about about MMA students being recruited in bar fights, challenging the instructors, etc., was hilarious. Thanks for the laughs, SamboSteve.

    i too am curious to see the replies. some of the posts on the thread are classic though. it shows a sincere lack of understanding about what MMA is about. that kind of mentality plus "everyone is a black belt" attitude will make for an interesting perspective. need to find out who is teaching and under what authority/pretense they are doing so. 350 for 12hours is rediculous...

    Yeah, some of tjose posts are damn funny!

    I don't think $350 for 12 hours is bad at all...if it is with quality coaches. That is only $30 an hour. I get more than that for a 4 hour seminar.
