Allen's Taekwondo Centers
683 Cary Towne Blvd, Cary, NC 27511
Really terrible business. "Master" Wegman and his wife own this place. They will take your money, ask you to pay for every little thing and then take trips on your dime while not actually teaching your child(ren) anything. If you'd like to pay about $3,000 to say you have a black belt, then this is the place for you. This place is a money pit and you will walk away not knowing any more taekwondo than the average kindergartener. And god forbid you would have a complaint and they would handle it like humans. There are other places in this area that are much better and cheaper. Don't waste your time or money with these people! Learn from my mistake!!!!

We love Allen's. My son has high functioning autism and is steadily moving toward his black belt which is a real accomplishment. He is learning about goals and meeting them each belt at a time. They teach good character traits as well as the physical art of martial arts. The other place he tried was too big and no character aspects were taught.

The Teachers were nice, aside from not having any standards by which to promote children from one belt to the other. (I asked) But don't run into hard times. The Iron Clad Contract (as quoted to me when I called to let them know we had transportation issues and request a refund or at least stop payment) holds no compassion.
Then, as if they even ever offered to help the first time, I received an email using my facebook complaints as JUSTIFICATION for not helping us! Had they even bothered to say "" I will see what I can do"" we would not have had the need to complain!
If you choose Allen's Taekwondo (formally Karate and a chain store), make sure you have enough in the bank to cover a layoff or a car breakdown, because this martial arts program chooses their financial gain over compassion.
