It seems there are currently 8 ATT certified TKD schools. I can only vouch for Southeast Texas TKD, though:

As far as I know level 1 schools are not certified by ATT, they are simply affiliates and I'm pretty sure any school can be an affiliate if you pay.

From the link in question:

Here is the contact information for our Headquarters, our ATT Locations, and our Level 1 Certified MMA Academies:
But hey, if, as you claim, ATT is running a 'buy an MMA certification' program, then, by all means, let's strike that line from the record. I certainly don't want to ruin TKD's good name by having it associated with disreputable MMA schools running scams.

I'm not saying it's buying a certification. What I get out of it is that it's basically just an affiliation. You can say you are affiliated with ATT, but you aren't actually any part of ATT.

Is there anyone from ATT teaching at these schools? If there is then I could see how it would be a "certified" school as far as what I'm getting from you. Our school is affiliated with ATT, but we have an ATT brown belt straight from Liborio teaching at our school.

ATT claims they have certified these schools. If you want to argue about their definition of 'certified', you'll need to do it with them.

It is very hard to throw spinning kicks after your legs get kicked it from under you. The way tkd guys stand they were get their legs destroyed.

He has a little bit of a point, a lot of traditional Muay Thai fighters fail to protect the body well, but honestly....there mental they will be in on you smashing you up in no time, and there front kicks make it very hard to deal with them at range.

Pure TKD guys get destroyed by Muay Thai fighters 9 times out of 10.
