And what school is that? Most people are too lazy to train here recently in any traditional stuff due to MMA cage brawl crap.
Aka ground and pound and choke holds XD

Read the name of the school. And if ground and pound is so effective or MMA as you call it then what is it that Horace Gracie's students can never compete in the octagon again? Oh that is right because his students got their buts handed to them by common street fighters!!!!! Look it up you will see!!!!!!

REALLY!!!!!!!!!! GLORIFIED street fighting you mean! In order for that crap to work you have to be able to get them on the ground. Otherwise it is useless against a traditional Martial Art! They will hurt you bad. That is why styles like Aikido is the Shit

No school in Cleveland comes close to what is going on up at Bateman's USA TAEKWONDO.. Grandmaster David Bateman is a 7th Degree Blackbelt in Hapkido. The aikido part alone that he knows in the realm of the KARATE JUDO JUJITSU AIKIDO and TAEKWONDO will blow any martial artist away around and his teaching is strict and he faces a real board of international Martial Arts Grandmasters for Testing... Bateman is the best.. every time I drive past the Aikido school they are always just standing around... Aikido does not work at all against Bateman's teaching... He has an open challenge you know...

Then why does and challenge Sensei Goss Personally!! They are not standing around they are working on technique which is something that no one at Mr. Batemans knows about since you put pads on and prepare for competition not the real world!!!!! and for you the idiot that posted this!!! let me educate you on something a Grandmaster is nothing more than a BRAGGER or a BRAG ART but will let Sensei Goss Know what you said and know that he will come over there and call you and anyone else out! then lets see what works and what dont.

Grandmaster David Bateman is a certified 7th Degree Black Belt in Hapkido. He is also a Master of KukKiwon Taekwondo. He has been a school owner and teacher since the Mid 1980's.. At his gym They have several programs and for Taekwondo pads are on.. but for Hapkido no pads.. don't kneed pads with the self control that is taught there. He himself is also A UNITED STATES and pan American Champion.. he was just nominated for the KOREAN MARTIAL ARTS MASTERS HALL OF FAME in 2014.... He is also the only coach that is coach and traîner of national and world champions in Cleveland Tennessee.. David Bateman's Grandmaster Doctor George Petrotta is a certfied Daedo Ryu Aikiryu Jujitsu 10th Dan.. In any Marital Arts challenge against BATEMAN your Sensei Goss would simply not prevail not even close. BATEMAN can take Anyone in Cleveland. Fighting, Forms, Breaking, weapons, grappling.. but no one can top his instruction he is the best. What is Goss? Like a 3 degree or something. Don't worry guys Aikido of Cleveland will simply go out of buisness like all the other non effective martial arts schools that close their doors in Cleveland.. BATEMAN has been open for six years in Cleveland and has some very high profile students from Cleveland. Including several Church Pastor's and big wig school teachers there to persue the only school in Cleveland World certified for World Blackbelt credentials...

Not impressed Bateman came to Sensei Goss's Dojo and apologized for Mr. Dobbs Stupidity! In Front of nine other people that was there. Mr. Dobbs as a big mouth and I think he should go and confront Sensei Goss himself!!!! That is if he has the balls or the back bone to do so . But we all know it is easy to talk crap on the internet. So lets just let the wind keep blowing the hot air coming out of his mouth!!!!!!!!!!

Both Bateman and Goss are magical martial artists. Just watch their videos.

Pathological liars.
