    This is a prime example of why ATA sucks;




    I haven't started a thread in awhile. If you ever want to let your friends know why the ATA is the leader in Taekwondo suckage, feel free to let the see their "Chief Master" test there. I just tortured my daughter and made her watch this so she can understand some of her friends who train at some Mcdojos.

    Holy ****, bad improv comedy ruined by hours of tedious practice is now the crown jewel and feather in the cap of current ATA practitioners? I will not begin to judge you for the way you treat your children, but ... isn't that a tad extreme dude?

    SHE DESERVES IT. SHE'S ABUSIVE TO ME!?

    You know what she did to me last year? I was on my way to my bedroom and she mugged me, hip toss me and pinned me.

    THAT'S ELDERLY ABUSE! I'm an old man now.

    Just finished the whole thing and I standby comment 100%. Have you not considered she was visited by a time traveling future self who told her nothing but that you truly deserve being hip tossed and mugged? She knew not of the specifics but only of the levels of evil you will commit, sir.

    She is in high school now and she has been coming up to me talking about all these students that got their black belts when they were like 8 or 9 years old so she need to see this stuff. CPS cannot hold this against me. It's education dammit!

    I was just saying it seemed a little over top. I understand exposing children to the environments other children are raised in.

    It was even a shitty video on its own merits. Literally nothing happens for 45 seconds, and nothing of consequence happens for another minute+. Ain't nobody got time for that. Jump to 10:30 to see horrific make believe weapon defense followed by a half minute of Ameridote killing moves, and cut to 16:20 to see Master Chief fall over doing a board break with the holders inexplicably in sparring gear.

    You're a champ. I gave up when he started with the staff, after the pretty ladies danced around with drums for a minute or so. I started counting how many times he would have broken his toes in that first form, but alas... it's not like he's ever going to actually fight anybody.

    I'm pretty sure the sparring gear was to protect them from an accidental blow.

    I saw Grandmaster Lee kick through one of the boards and land a foot on one of those guys.

    What happened to no more ATA threads? Discipline here is out the door.

    What's the turd's username that pops in occasionally to beat the ATA drum? Somebody summon the guy. I don't do Korean incantations.
