    Bountiful - Mr. Whittaker, 2nd dan (my instructor, a great guy and a skilled martial artist)
    Layton - Mr. Benedict, 1st dan
    Taylorsville - Mr. Martin, 2nd dan (probably my least favorite person in USSD at the time being.)
    West Jordan - Ms. Robb, 1st dan
    Orem - Mr. Perry, 4th dan (amazing)
    Provo - Nick Strange, 1st dan
    Millcreek - "Sensei Gao" (no one can really pronounce his real name), 2nd dan (and one of my favorite instructors.)
    Riverton - Mr. Garvey, 2nd dan.

    Murray - Zach, "red belt"
    Alta View - Either Jay or Alyssa, "red belts"
    Sandy - Duane, "red belt"
    American Fork - Tom, "red belt" (he was made Chief Instructor in his second week at the Academy. I do not approve, as I know what his actual rank is. Low.)
    South Ogden - Jamie, "red belt" (She's great, I went to school with her. She got me into United Studios, and her sister studies at Bountiful.)

    My instructor alluded to this, but when I kept asking why not he finally said that it could be done it would just take a long time and most people don't stay that long.

    I hear ya. who wants to wait 20 years. I hear villaris test are harder than ussds and they dont base it on sales. You earn your rank not sell black belt programs for it.

    I have been told that students will practicly never see past 2nd degree. You know, unless there are "special circumstances", which I'm pretty sure I don't have to elaborate on.

    I haven't been with them since 1998. I actually tried going back sometime in 1999, but once you're on the outside you see everything in a whole new light. Especially after my old instructors said somethings to me that made me realize that it really wasn't the place for me.

    I just walked in not knowing of anywhere else that was available, but with a strong desire to do martial arts. In hindsight I wish I would have done some more research before making any decisions, but oh well to late now.

    If your instructor said that, that's wrong and you were right to leave.

    It was said to me when I was looking to get back. It reinforced the negatives views that I built, hell, it validated them.
