I've seen this video around a fair bit, but I can't find much background about who / what organization / style it is?

    That's a godan grading! Words fail me... Whatever style it is, stay as far away from it as you can! – Sardathrion - against SE abuse Dec 12 '14 at 9:16

    Even though the style is rather questionable, I don't think we should revert to name-calling here. Can you please change the question's tag? – THelper Dec 12 '14 at 11:56

    @KeithNicholas - The internet has different standards than most SE sites. – JohnP Dec 12 '14 at 22:53
  • I am in Michael Dealys class. There is no contact and we do Tae Kwon Do. I hope this was helpful. – Chris Andrewzz Feb 13 '18 at 1:49

The video is from the World Martial Arts Association which was setup by Michael T. Dealy in the early 1990s, Mike Dealy trained under Grandmaster Duk Sung Son. The style is Chung Do Kwan, a form of Tae Kwon Do with light or no-contact.

The WMAA has a video channel on Youtube, but about a year ago all video's were removed, probably because of the criticism they received. The WMAA is often ridiculed on the Internet as being a McDojo/McDojang (for example see here, here and here)
