    Time will tell dude.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Yes, I agree.

    8 is infinitely times more than zero --that's a lot.

    What's this have to do with ATT?

    Is MMA no longer the saviour of martial arts? Who's gonna step up?

    My school is now a ATT certified school and has been teaching the classes since the new year began.

    How is it? What have you learned so far?

    There was also a question of what is an "affiliate" and what isn't earlier.

    But your school is an official affiliate, right? What does that get you?
    On the schedule I clicked on the ATT MMA link and got to some paragraphs that had this on them: "UMA is an official affiliate of American Top Team and teaches it's Level 1 program towards certification."

    How does that work?

    Well let me start by saying that there are alot of things that were great about this school before we had MMA classes. When I was looking for a place to train there was only one mma school in the area, and I didnt care for it to much. This school has always had full contact sparring. When I say full contact sparring.. I mean just that. Think kyokushin WITH punches to the face. I have never seen a tma that placed more emphasis on what works. The people here bang, and we have lost buisness because of this. Most mothers take one look at our adult sparring class (yes we have full contact sparring classes 4 days a week GASP!) and they send there son jhonny to the TKD school up the block.

    That being said, this seemed a natuaral buisness decision for us. I dont think any of us hold any illusions over the training our instructors received at ATT. For gods sake, no one is going to train a cage fighter with three weeks of instruction.

    I did think it was a little funny when I saw everyone start the new classes with all of there prety and new ATT t-shirts, but whatever. MMA is a fashion now, dont think its not for one second.

    Overall, the classes are alot of conditioning, wich is always great, and alot of good basics. And by basics I dont mean.. "this is how you sprawl' like I thought it would be. More like.. 'This is how you sprawl, and while you do that... use your three basic hand locks, and this is how you fight for underhooks while sprawling,... and now heres how you turn that sprawl defense into a reversal offense..'

    Larry St Clair and one of his Shooto students went to this thing not too long ago, and Larry got invited to go back and train with Din Thomas afterwards. There's supposed to be a ATT curriculum class opening up this month, rather than him inserting it into the existing Vale Tudo class(which I haven't been to in forever)

    Can I ask:

    what benefit do you think, apart from usage of the ATT name and logo, would a school with an existing MMA program attain from this program?
