Ok, so the rumor going around in my neck of the woods is that the ATA is in some kind of (secret?) talks with the AAU, and may join. Has anybody else heard this? Is there any truth to this? I find it hard to believe that an organization that's been closed for so long would consider joining the AAU, which is fairly open. Also the ATA has their own forms, the Songahm patterns, so I'm not sure how that could even work inside the AAU framework.
