I trained at an ATA TKD place for damn near 8 years, from age 9 to 17. There were at least 2 instructors there that, even looking back on what I know now of fighting, were legimiately badass and I'm sure would handle themselves just fine in a fight. One specifically had a background in Muay Thai, and would go to any grappling seminar he could and come back and show us what he learned. However, I did not become a badass by association with them, and a lot of the stuff I learned wasn't very useful when I started training Muay Thai or Boxing.
You can train ATA and be a good fighter, but generally not because you trained ATA.

I submit most people do not know how to put it on correctly. Ask Moose about the Sushi bar experience of yesterday.
I have used it often, and it is much easier to get than wristlocks.

See, i thought it was. I thought, "oh wow, thats a silly gimmicky type move...Surely it'd never work"
Out to sushi, with my Uncle, mom and Dad and what not, i ask my Uncle, "Hey, whats the deal with Waki Gatame? It doesn't seem very secure at all"
Can you guess what happened next? I got Waki motherfucking Gatame'd, and let me tell you, there was no escape. None. At. All.
Apparently you have to clamp your elbow, hell if i know, it just hurt.

That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.
