Is it possible that the people they are certifying are already capable of teaching MMA, and the only thing being taught in the seminar is the "ATT method"? The people attending the seminar might just be getting a curriculum for their MMA school that would then be certified by the ATT so they could use the ATT in marketing their gym.

However, the tenor of the email reply given to Oldman was that a Tia Chi instructor could pay $7,700 and roll for three days and get an MMA Cert.

Then maybe someone should look into the schools that have been certified so far to evaluate the level of MMA experience.

I was wondering if somewhere within the framework of the contract, since the Level 1 "franchisee", for a lack of a better word, is able to use the name and logo of ATT within their advertising, if they ATT is able to exact some measure of control over the method, verbage or description of the training the student is receiving.
They state in the e-mail Oldie posted: "This program is definitely not set up to train pro fighters. That is what ATT does, we are encouraging schools to capitalize on the mma craze, without losing their traditional roots" and "The ATT gives you credibility of great proportion. Joe Rogan is quoted every UFC event as saying "ATT is the #1 mma camp in the country." I firmly agree.)"
But I don't see anything which allows ATT to remove sanction from a school misrepresenting what ATT's intenitons are

What will ATT-certified schools call their kid programs? Grade School Grapplers? Top Team Tots? Will there be cross-marketing with the American Girl store? (Ashley The Cagefighter, 2010!)

I don't suppose there'd be a chance that the guys running this scheme would pass on participating school's details for testimonial/research purposes?
Also, props to the ATT guys who have posted on this thread and haven't been afraid to voice their concerns.

I definitely think we need someone to look in on a certified school.

If I read his post correctly, Oldie tried, but the school was closed.
