SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS TO
GRAND MASTER KIT
ON DECEMBER 11, 2004 HE WAS
INDUCTED INTO THE
TAE KWON DO HALL OF FAME
FOR HIS LIFE TIME ACHIEVEMENTS
IN MARTIAL ARTS.
Grand Master Kit Mattson is one of the highest ranked non-oriental in the world and is certified by the W.T.F., A.A.U., N.T.U. as an 8th Degree Black Belt and is ranked as a Black Belt in five other martial arts styles. Master Kit has been practicing Tae Kwon Do for over 28 years and is a weapons expert in Arnis Sticks, Bo Staff, Nunchucks, Knives, and Katana Sword. Master Kit's programs also include law enforcement, rape defense, advanced Black Belt studies and several masters' programs.

I needed to verify such a proclimation! So I took a visit!

Very predominatley displayed on their doors and windows of their studios. AAU and WTF Certified Blackbelt Training and Certification.

After witnessing some of their practices and students, you will see many individuals under the age of 15 wearing 1st degree or better Dan (Black) Belts. I also noticed clearly demonstrated inabilities, to perform the elements required to move from belt level to belt level.

Then I see knee high black belts running about, and I think...

WTF will only recognize or issue a certification on those 15 or older. Hers's the Link to the World Taekwondo Headquarters web site Article 8 describes The Age Restrictions for Black Belt or DAN Level http://www.kukkiwon.or.kr/english/examination... Hey but they all looked very cute though!

AAU will recognize students younger (8), but they would need to be submitted by an AAU Dan Certifier http://www.aautaekwondo.org/ , Unfortunately after checking the A.A.U. doesn't have or cannot show a registration for the organization or the individual for at least the past five years. Are you sure, I asked?
How are they Certifying their students? I wonder!

Next I took a stab at finding aout about the Hall of Fame Inductance - Opps! http://www.lacancha.com/greatest.html I still came up scratching my head, no Kit Mattson shown.

Then being the inquisitive type I am and trying to give a little more opportunity to lend for proof, I used the ever popular Google search for "Kit Mattson" came up with only 128 pages This made it pretty easy to scan through for any reference to the "Hall of Fame Inductance" and the "One of the Highest Ranked Non-Oriental black belts in the World" the only reference to those were from his own web site. Now you'd think this would be a really big deal and there would be articles all over the place, wouldn't you?

But Maybe there's some big mistake in our research and investigation, so please help me out and prove me wrong! But I'm doubting it!

If you have more information to help me on my quest for verifiable information & truth, or if you have other insight feel free to post. http://kickstaekwondo.blogspot.com/2006/08/ki...

But in the mean time, investigate before you make your decision of where you send your kids or go youself - rather than dump your money for an Office Max Certificate of completion.

But then again it seems there are those out there that would rather by my blackbelt at the taekwondo store, even cheaper. Maybe it's cheaper for you to send your kids there rather than having a baby sitter for a few nights a week. Your choice!

WE, TOO FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY. YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE DOING THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILD BY PROVIDING NUMEROUS CLASSES, SEMINARS, AND OTHER ACTIVITES AT THE SCHOOL AND FIND OUT THAT NOBODY IS REALLY WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE. IT TOOK A LOT OF INVESTIGATING, BUT THE KNOWLEDGE THAT WE OBTAINED WAS WORTH EVERY LONG DISTANCE CALL AND TIME SPENT ON THE INTERNET. AS ADULTS WE SHOULD ALWAYS DO OUR HOMEWORK FIRST BEFORE WE ENGAGE OUR CHILDREN IN ACTIVITIES AND HAVE TO PULL THEM OUT AFTER THEY HAVE FORMED RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE STAFF, PEERS, AND THEIR FAMILIES. ONE WORD OF CAUTION IS TO CHECK ON BUSINESSES BEFORE A COMMITMENT IS MADE. ALWAYS ASK FOR A THREE MONTH OR LESS TRIAL PERIOD SO YOU CAN SEE IF THE MONEY BEING SPENT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT. IT MAY COST A LITTLE MORE UP FRONT, IN THE LONG RUN IT WILL BE LESS OF A PROBLEM IF IT DOES NOT WORK OUT. LAST WORD OF ADVICE...DO NOT LET ANYONE TALK YOU INTO AUTO DEBIT...BECAUSE IF THINGS DON'T WORK OUT IT IS HARD TO STOP THEM FROM TAKING YOUR MONEY. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN LEARN FROM OUR EXPERIENCE AND NOT HAVE THE PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED. SIGNED KICKED TO THE GROIN AND STILL STANDING

Hello from Kit Mattson,My teacher and I have an organization with the AAU the # is sptwy64kb6, so you are wrong! Next the WTF does certify black belts at 8 years just not dan blackbelts. Oops your Wrong again. KICKS blackbelts train very hard for 4 years so I don't like you trying to direspect them. We at KICKS are 100% the real deal. You get an F on your Homework! The teacher! GOD BLESS You! How does it feel to be wrong?

Most peolple are very jealous of KICKS Tae Kwon Do's teachers and schools because of the success they have achieved. This is very
sad. But that is Life.
KICKS is 100% the real deal.

Just because you do not get your way does not give you the right to trash a good man's repuation. When clearly all of his awards show and certifications prove that he knows what he is doing and no parent or student should question or doubt his ability to teach a class. I have been with Master Kit Mattson for along time so I know he is the real deal. And if you cant say anything nice dont say anything at all!!!!!!!!!! And slandering someone's character is against the law. To trash Master Kit's character is very low and foolish because he is a very professional man who cares for the well being of his students and expects his students to do their absolute best.
A good man

Master Kit Mattson is a very nice person and to try to trash what he has accomplished is very wrong. He has worked very hard to accomplish what he has so if you try to trash him you are probably just jealous. So, go ahead and sell your belt. To be a black belt is a honor and you do not deserve that honor or respect.

Hello from Shock & Awe, we have been with KICKS now for almost a month. What we both have observed, felt, and heard nothing short of miraculous at the dojo. KICKS has a professional staff that prides itself on putting out a grade A product,... us the students. When Shock and myself feel that we are waivering from our goals, we both hear "Chop Chop" and Kit Mattson giving us the boost to go on. Our goals are taken on at KICKS and they help all the students achieve their goals in a caring manner. So in short KICKS is the real deal
God Bless you =)

Dear Real or Spoof

I was very concerned when reading your recent slanderous and defaming blog on the internet. I had many questions for you – such as did you even attempt to question Master Kit directly, and did you even consider speaking directly to any students, parents, or instructors? Probably not. People like you prefer to hide behind anonymity and persecute others with some kind of belief that you are helping mankind. I know for a fact that if you had tried to communicate your concerns that any person from the Dojo could have easily settled your mind.

What Kick’s has done for me personally: Beginning about two years ago I had several very difficult hardships in my life that just seemed to keep coming for a total of 18 months. My mother died suddenly, three days later my favorite aunt died of lung cancer, an uncle had a heart attack, two aunts were diagnosed with cancer, my sister was taken over by breast cancer and eventually died and I had to have my German Shepard that I had had for 16 years put to sleep. I was working 60 hours a week with little or no exercise. My blood pressure was sky high.

My friend John had his child, Dylan, enrolled in classes at Kick’s and suggested that we both join. I was unsure, being an out of shape, 45 year old desk jockey. But decided I needed to do something or succumb to depression and getting physically run down. At first I could not even make it through an entire class without almost hyperventilating. I would see the advance classes and what they could do and was totally impressed, but believed I could never make it. I said over and over that I just could not physically do what was expected. However, Master Kit and all the instructors kept pushing and pushing and I saw that I could do this and every day I impressed myself. During this time I was diagnosed with skin cancer, high blood pressure and polyps in my sinuses. Even during the skin cancer treatments I was run down and the treatments were painful but I continued to go to classes when I could. All of my doctors stated that they were surprised by my healing and how quickly I recovered. Just last week I was told by my doctor that my blood pressure was the lowest that they have recorded for me in the two years that she has been treating me. I sleep better and my confidence is sky high.

You also stated that you should investigate where you send your child or go yourself rather than “dump your money for and Office Max Certificate of Completion”. Wow, you should have taken heed to your own words of advice. If you had you would see that Master Kit has devoted his life to teach what he is more than capable of teaching. If you would have even stepped one foot into the office you would have seen the certificates and trophies that are legitimate. I watch Master Kit interact with all students and family members and he is the real deal. He wants everyone to succeed and he is always positive and motivating.

I honestly don’t know where I would be at this time in my life if I had not agreed with my friend John and joined Kicks, but everyday I am glad that I joined the Kick’s family.

Real or Spoof - Riverside CA,

I feel very disgusted with your blog. Master Kit Mattson has worked long and hard at his Art for someone like you to slander his character, Dojo, and his principals. I have been going to Kicks for sometime now. He has been a great teacher; role model for my son Dylan, and myself. I have all the respect for him and his staff.

I see some kids that arrive at the school very shy and timid. They don’t look up, walk with their heads down and very quiet. In only a few months of working with Master Kit they are confident, and the walk with pride.

As you said “Maybe it's cheaper for you to send your kids there rather than having a baby sitter for a few nights a week”. It looks like you where looking to have Kicks watch your kid(s) rather than hire a baby sitter.

Kids don’t make you a parent;

Love
Dedication
Sharing
Working with others
Responsibility
Showing a good example
And most of all Respect makes a parent

I feel extremely saddened if this is the way you raise your kid(s)!

John Serna

p.s. Why would you not sign your name and show some respect?

Dear Real or Spoof
It was very upsetting to read these accusations against Master Kit. I have been sending my children for 4 and a half years for Tae Kwon Do and I never had a problem with him or his staff. He is a wonderful and pleasant instructor who teaches my children very well. He teaches them to do the best that they can and that gives them the confidence they have today. I think these accusations are all lies. Why would he have certificates that proves what he is today.

The reason I did not sign my name is because if you did your homework you would understand. Everything is out there if you want to look. AAU Membership was applied for approximately TWO WEEKS ago. Also, AAU does NOT certify instructors. Check the BBB, the last time I checked there were two unresolved complaints. The first being someone wanted a black belt certificate and they were VERBALLY ABUSED. The other was over an auto debit issue with a pregnant woman.

The final class is in session!
You have wasted enough of my time and energy of having to always prove you wrong. I was in the martial arts and a first dan with the wtf(kukkiwon)when you were in diapers wetting the bed. Three things. Just to make you feel very happy, warm and fuzzy. I purchased a second club# for the organization only this time so you will have no more to say, it says kicks taekwondo on it.Old # that I will still use is #sptwy64kb6 and new one I will never use is #sptwy77ka7. Second, The usa taekwondo you refer to is an insurance company for competitors mainly and anyone with a dollar can join it. Its origional name was the USTU, and is an trainning complex, but your new and wouldn't know that either! We don't need insurance through them we have our own. Again KICKS offers 3 types of certifications for everyones budget and preference. AAU, KUKKIWON, KICKS ENT. It is the students choice.
So the challenge still remains.Ladys and children close you eyes!
Put up or Shut up! I am starting to like making you look bad, but like I said it takes up my time that I would rather focus on my students becoming great Blackbelts.

WHAT KIND OF "TEACHER" THREATENS THEIR STUDENTS OR OTHERS? OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE NO HONOR OR INTEGRITY.

CLASS IS IN SESSION: RULE #1 HONESTY...NINGAS ARE ALWAYS HONEST. KIT YOU ARE NO NINGA.

RULE #2 COMMON SENSE...NINGAS ALWAYS SHOW THEIR BEST WORK AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS. KIT YOUR CERTIFICATE ON YOUR WEBSITE HAS BEEN ALTERED. I DON'T WANT ANY EXCUSES (BACK TO RULE #1)...JUST BE HONEST.

I SPOKE TO UPPER MANAGEMENT AT AAU AND USA TAE KWON DO (WTF) AND THEY VIEWED YOUR WEB PAGE WITH YOUR CERTIFCATES. THEIR COMMENTS WERE THAT THE CERTIFICATES WERE 100% FAKE. HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT? THINK QUICK...INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW.

1ST ASSIGNMENT: VIEW KICK'S WEBSITE AND GO TO KIT'S CERTIFICATES AND SEE HOW MANY WAYS AN EIGHT CAN BE WRITTEN. REMEMBER TO ALWAYS PRACTICE YOUR PENMANSHIP SO OTHERS DON'T CATCH ON.

2ND ASSIGNMENT: CALL EACH OF THE ORGANIZATIONS AND ASK IF KICKS IS A MEMBER. IF THEY ARE, FIND OUT WHEN THEY JOINED. MORE THAN LIKELY YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO ASK THE FIRST QUESTION. IF YOU ONLY ASK KIT AND HAVEN'T DONE ANY RESEACH (IE: PHONE CALLS, USA TAE KWON DO/WTF CAN BE CHECKED ON THEIR WEBSITE) THEN A FAILING GRADE WILL BE ISSUED. KIT WILL SAY SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF WE'RE NOT REGISTERED UNDER THE KICKS NAME. I'VE HEARD THAT ONE BEFORE.

3RD ASSIGNMENT: FIND SOMEONE WHO HAS A BLACK BELT ISSUED FROM KICKS. IT CAN BE LOOKED UP ON THE KUKIWON WEBSITE. WTF (KUKIWON) CERTIFICATES ORIGINATE IN SEOUL, KOREA AND ARE SENT TO USA TAE KWON DO IN COLORADO WHERE THEY ARE LOGGED AND THEN ARE SENT TO THE APPROPRIATE SCHOOLS TO BE AWARDED TO THE STUDENT. I HAVE A SHINY HALF DOLLAR FOR THE FIRST PERSON TO FIND AN ACTUAL WTF (KUKIWON) CERTIFICATE.

ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNING BODY OF TAE KWON DO, THERE ARE SCHOOLS POPPING UP EVERYWHERE AND NOT ENOUGH MANPOWER TO CHECK EACH ONE OUT. AS CONSUMERS WE MUST DO OUR PART AND CHECK EACH ORGANIZATION TO SEE IF THEY ACTUALLY BELONG AND THEIR STANDING. CHECK BBB AND THE CITY OR COUNTY FOR BUSINESS LICENSES. ALL OF US WORK HARD FOR OUR MONEY AND THEREFORE WE SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHO WE GIVE IT TO.

IF YOU WISH TO RECEIVE EXTRA CREDIT: FIND SOMEONE WHO WENT TO THE LAS VEGAS TOURNEMENT AND ASK HOW THEY DID IN FORMS. BONUS POINTS FOR THE PERSON WHO HAS A PICTURE OF KIT ON HIS BEHIND ON THE MAT.

MOON IM HAS STARTED A NEW ORGANIZATION CALLED "NTU". EACH OF THE ORGANIZATIONS I HAVE SPOKEN TO SAY THAT THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT. YOU BE THE JUDGE.

P.S. IF ANYONE HAS SEEN KIT'S DICTIONARY, PLEASE RETURN IT ASAP. I HAVE A FEELING HE MAY NEED IT IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I TOO DID NOT WANT TO BELIEVE ANY OF THIS. I HEARD A FEW PEOPLE TALKING AND I JUST HAD TO SEE FOR MYSELF. I EVEN WENT SO FAR AS TO PLACE SEVERAL CALLS TO THESE ORGANIZATIONS OUT OF FEAR THEY COULD HAVE MISSED SOMETHING. I TOURED SOME OTHER SCHOOLS AND CALLED THE SAME ORGANIZATIONS AND WAS HAPPY TO FIND OUT THAT THE SCHOOLS WERE MEMBERS. IF YOUR CHILDREN DON'T PLAN ON USING THEIR TAE KWON DO OUTSIDE OF KICKS AND THEY'RE HAPPY AT KICKS, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT. IF YOU NEED TO KNOW THEN GO TO THE ORGANIZATIONS WEBSITES AND WRITE DOWN THEIR PHONE NUMBER AND GIVE THEM A CALL. AT LEAST YOU WILL KNOW ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. I WISH YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN THE BEST.

My child attended Kicks. They were not shy nor did they have any type of behavioral problems. They always strived to do their very best and maintain control of their actions. My child was considered a well adjusted, serious student that wanted to succeed in Martial Arts. They maintained top grades along with, Tae Kwon Do, and community service. When I first found out some of the information I had to know for myself. I checked everything I could find. Unfortunately it all added up. I looked for another school and brought my child in for a free class. My child performed like a champ, or so I thought. The Master told me that my child was missing a portion of their Poomse. Oh yeah they had a few things added in too. I didn't want to believe him afterall why would Kicks teach my child something incorrectly. The Master reviewed more of their forms and the answer was the same. He showed me a Kukiwon book and copied the pages that had the forms for us to have. This free class was on a Saturday and we had the rest of the weekend to see what the rest should look like. My husband found a Kukiwon website with the forms on it and we matched it to the Kicks forms, the Master was right. I wanted to know what we had been paying for all this time, obviously it was not the forms. Monday came and we went to two classes. The first one was the correct belt class and the second was the lower belt class. My child looked lost during the first class. The second class was ready to start and they didn't want to go. My child who was so confident and loved Tae Kwon Do was more or less pushed onto the mat for the next class. They hung their head down and wanted to be back at Kicks with familar faces and forms. I wanted to cry.

Time has passed, they know all of their forms now, they help with other students, and will be testing for a new belt in less than a month. We liked the school so much that we joined as a family.

Sometimes we get caught in a place where we feel comfortable and we jump into it with our hearts and not our heads. I know how much we spent at Kicks and I'm not spending as much now and that's for the entire family. I did check the new school out while I was checking out Kicks. I can honestly say that I did my homework.

I'M NOT SURE IT HAD TO DO WITH GETTING THEIR WAY. TRUST ME IF YOU CALL SOME OF THESE PLACES AND CHECK FOR YOURSELF, YOU'LL BE AS SHOCKED AS I WAS. IF I HAD NOT HEARD IT WITH MY OWN EARS FROM SEVERAL ORGANIZATIONS I WOULD HAVE SAID THE SAME THING.

If we were not real why would they list us on the www.spa-aau.org AAU web site. You are just a person angry and trying to cause damage to our school. You can't we are getting bigger and better everyday. If you want to you can come by the school, you are only 40 min. away and I will show you documents which will prove the truth. Be accountable for your actions and list your name. Don't be afraid I won't hurt you! Come to the school! You can cry now! On my Honor!

I don't feel like crying. I would like you to answer some questions HONESTLY.

1.Why did your website originally list you as part of the Tae Kwon Do Hall of Fame and now you're listed on another Hall of Fame? Do tell.

2.Why did your website originally list you as an AAU 8th degree blackbelt and now you're a 7th?

3.When will you be a 6th degree? You're not old enough (DOB-12-24-69).

4.Why did your AAU certificate have a number on it issued from someplace other than Southern California? The area where the number comes from says that is not a good number.

5.What happened to your AAU certificate? I noticed it was missing. Did they ask you to remove it from your website?

6.How come your Kukkiwon certificate is on the edge of the page? Was that done on purpose?

7.Why do you cover the numbers up on your certificates? It's not like someone could steal your information.

8.How do you sleep at night?

P.S. I have been making copies of your website so I can refer back to them. I wouldn't want my information to be incorrect.

I never intended to do you damage, you've done that all by yourself. Those of us who have researched the school just want others to know that you may not be all that you have lead others to believe. If there's something wrong with that than I'm sorry but companies and products are put to the test regularly. If you can't hack it, than maybe you're in the wrong business.
