    Wow, the story keeps getting worse. It's an ATA Tae Kwon Do USA school that objected. Now the ATA school, and the other school, Draco Martial Arts say that a Judo school would directly compete with their offering of Hapkido. First, ATA doesn't teach hapkido, last I heard. Second, since when do Hapkido practitioners find their way to judo tournaments?

    What a load of bunk. If you teach crap MA, it seems the only way you can protect your monopoly is through government. Too bad they're such crap that they're afraid of a little competition.

    Well, to tell you the truth, nobody really gives a **** about us and what we do. The article has it right. We are talking about one percent of the population. Whether you are teaching bullshido or the re3l d3adly, nobody gives a ****. It's dollars and cents. How much money in taxes do they bring in and who do they know on the board.

    At the end of the day, it's pretty doubtful that anyone is going to live or die because there isn't one more shitty judo/jj/mma/muay thai/kickboxing/yoga/wrestling school.

    The fact is that they didn't get the permits, so **** them. I thank god every day that there are still thousands of able-bodied young men practicing bullshido.

    Well, it figures that someone like an ATA school owner would bring up this issue and try to get the permit denied. And don't say that ATA teaches taekwondo, either - it is not traditional taekwondo, just some made up stuff that ONLY they do. - oooh lots of secret information about what and how they teach. Silly wankers, all of them. If she can't keep 30% of her students when a new school opens down the street, then it's sure not the fault of the other school - but it says pages about her ATA curriculum.

    1. Nobody seems to have picked on the fact that it wasn't an ATA school. Although TKD USA is basically as shitty or shittier.

    2. Perhaps someone can correct me if I am wrong, but "traditional" taekwondo is what, like a few decades old?

    3. It's basic capitalism. The customers get to decide.

    Update and full story via judoforum:

    The judo instructor posted his story on Judoforum, people emailed the zoning/town board to help, and the situation was resolved.

    News article:
    http://www.southtownstar.com/news/17...switch.article
    Judoforum thread from start to finish:
    http://judoforum.com/index.php?showtopic=40056&hl=

    Makes me fuzzy inside to see it work out.

    Made me confused to find this thread in the KMA section, instead of News....
