    Future MMA / UFC Generation Needs Help!

    Team AMA recently qualified to represent the United States at a World Championship tournament in Seoul, Korea. Our 10 students were the only 10 students in Louisiana to qualify for the World Championship tournament. These boys, ages 6 to 14, have worked very hard to accomplish this achievement. However, due to extreme costs, the team may miss the World Championship tournament! Please help us! Our story and donation info can be found at http://www.griffinsama.net/help.html. Please forward this info to everyone you know! Thanks sooo much!

    While it's great that your little tigers/dragons/ninjas/whatevers qualified for Korea. Rocking up and posting 4 posts, all amounting to donation spam - because you didn't introduce yourself, you've never posted here, you've otherwise added nothing, and it's not apparent (looking at your school) that you have any intention of contributing to the boards once you've been to your tourney. So... how about a little more color commentary.
    You could just be a total scam artist who found a pic off the internet of a class of kids and are trying to sucker MA sites into handing over cash.

    Nothing on the website but "Donate Now" generators, no school info, competitor info, instructors info or even a proper god damn picture....What exactly is AMA? Where is the academy? What Martial Arts are actually schooled and by whom?

    Inadeqaute Info = Scam

    Well, if you just take off the help.html off the end you can get to their schools main website which seems pretty straightforward. Unlikely to be a scam.

    Spam OTOH.

    Just to let you know that I have never heard of this club. I have never seen them at an MMA event or one of the BJJ tournaments that has a children MMA style event. While they may have done something at an organizational tournament I have never seen them compete in this area.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    That's the piece that's not being made clear here. They're future, "potential" UFC'ers... but current, little hapkido/tang soo do/mumble mumble junior korean MA-ists. School looks super McDojo... and otherwise - see prev. comments on spammy crap.
