    Here a quote from there website about opening your own Martial Arts World school (listed under Careers):


    poking around, I found this little gem about the kind of "training" required to open your own school (and be granted the title of MAW CEO)

    From what I can tell by digging around the site it appears that the Instructor's College classes are held at the various MAW schools themselves.



    Please tell me this is some kind of elaborate troll job. If not, this is probably the biggest McDojo (and probably Bullshido since they actually claim to teach self-defense) I have ever seen. . ..Or a cult. It could be a martial arts cult.


    I dunno, I just know it was pretty damn bad. Everything I've always understood a McDojo to be.

    Dang Soodo, or DangSooDo is just a different way of saying the more common Tang Soo Do. Some, probably Errant108, would say that DangSooDo more properly represents the correct way to say it.

    Back in my old TKD days, I recall seeing som articles by YK Kim...I knew his face the minute I saw it...LOL.

    This is classic:



    according to his bio on the website he is "The world’s most dynamic speaker"

    WOW!! the best speaker in the WORLD! Incredible...

    Sounds more like he is a Master of "Take My Dough"...

    Heh... "Special Forces Kick" reminds me of Andy Samberg performing his "Ultimate Punch" in the movie Hot Rod.

    any relation to Tae Yun Kim.
    the bios between the two seem eerily similar.

    I thought it might have some relation to TSD just based of the sound of it, but when nothing else came up under Google (yes I know Google isn't infallable), I found it a bit odd.
