It is expensive. Sometimes I really think they are in it just for the $ but the I see how the kids react to Joshua and the amount of respect they have for him and I only throw up once when I write the $320 monthly dues for two kids. I don't know about the haverhill school but the plaistow one is great. Joshua munez rocks!! He might be young but his confidence level is amazing. My kids love him and fear him, lol. He is amazing with the kids. I so wanna get up there and work out but my wallet can't afford 3 students. All in all the school gives me goose bumps when I see how my kids have become more confident and have gained self discipline. To me the money was a huge downfall in the beginning but now it's worth every penny. You get what you pay for. As for the other review ....... You are going for your black belt not a walk in the park. 3 miles in 27the mins is a 9 min mile. 6.3 mph (estimated). Train harder and stop complaining.
