If she's happy at the ATA school now, of course she'll want to stay there, especially if she's got friends there. Now, if you like the WTF school, you could always take her by there and have her try the trial class/period just to see.

But I wanna say, as somebody that teaches KKW/WTF-style TKD: quality has more to do with the instructor and school environment than with the organization or style. Not all WTF schools are great. It's quite possible that ATA school is as good or better than the WTF schools around. Don't get too hung up on that.

I hope she heals up soon!

Because, like you, I'd been out of training for a long long time. I'd have looked like a putz wearing a BB. I didn't remember the Chang Hon forms (I've since relearned them). I didn't know the Palgwae forms required by this school. I didn't know the (optional) Taegeuk forms. In short, I didn't deserve a BB. The only thing my prior training meant was that I advanced far faster than the norm for this school. On average, 1st Dan takes 6-8 years here. I did it in 2.

I hope she mends quickly.

I know I keep missing it, how old she is, but at a younger age, friends make or break the experience.
As long as the school does not go off on the deep end, sometimes well enough has to do.
Little girls are sometimes difficult to encourage.
