Do NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN HERE. Parents please note the business' response to any negative reviews, he does not take responsibility for his actions. He does not listen to the parents concerns but immediately becomes defensive and aggressive if he disagrees with you. He will literally start to insult you, belittle you and call you names while shouting. I have read the reviews and most of them are pretty on point regarding how he handles the business and the parents. I did not know any of these reviews were on the internet, after recently having an incident with the owner I was mortified and afraid for my child but I am locked in a contract. I decided to research the reviews and realized this is how he generally deals with disagreements. He immediately became offensive and accusatory and started to make statements up. He is absolutely ok with you taking your child out but still collecting under the contract. The contract is his go to statement for any concerns you may have no matter how innocent. He boosts about the school being 35 years old and how great it is. What he is not telling you is that for 25 years it was run by his father, a far better human being.
Do not put your kids on this place! They moved to plantation on Cleary Blvd. My 7 year old was screamed and humiliated in front of the whole class when he made a mistake on his first day! When I asked why the instructor say that they use a technique where kids are "put down" so they never make a mistake again. They don't know the difference between teaching and being abusive!! Parents, find your kids another school where they are treated with respect.
PLEASE Read the consumer reports website for more details. Stay away from these people! They have had several BBB complaints filed against them. They made unauthorized charges on my credit card. They are more interested in taking your money to buy a black belt than teaching you the skills to earn one. It is a very unfortunate situation to find your family in.
This is THE WORST PLACE! Signed "paperwork" that locked me into a 3 year contract for not one but two of my children. We had already been at the school for a couple of years when they had us fill out "new paperwork". Those papers ended up locking us into paying over $7,000. We were unaware of this until we tried to leave the school. They informed us that we would still have to pay even though we were not taking lessons anymore. I can never talk to someone in charge. I get the run around. They want money more than they want to teach children. It's all about the MONEY with them and they hold up their precious contract in your face every time you complain. They also will resort to sneaky methods to get money! They took a credit card number they had on file but were NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE and charged it. Making it very difficult to pay bills! When told to return money that there was documented proof that they had no authorization...Guess what they are stalling again!Telling me they "may not be able to refund the money "FRAUD MUCH!!!! Please believe these reviews. There are just to many negative reviews to deny!Check with The Better Business Bureau they get an F RATING!
We All do it together as a family matter of fact we have set a goal together to accomplish a black belt together. Building memories and achieving a worthwhile goal together as a family is something that my kids will remember forever. We simply love it not to mention the impact Parks has made on my kids discipline and confidence. You gotta try it!
Before signing up for this McDojo, we really should have checked their rating with the Better Business Bureau: it was an F at that time and remains an F as of this writing, with most complaints about billing.Their hard sell is psychologically designed to pit your sense of duty as a parent against your sense of fiscal responsibility. Once you sign up, your account will be immediately transferred to a financial services agency, Member Services of Jenkintown, PA. So, even when the teachers change, you become dissatisfied with the class, or your child loses interest, Park's won't (and claim they can't) do anything about it. From the first day, the account is not with Park's, it's with a collection agency in another state.I agree with the others on this site who have criticized Park's for teaching integrity while lacking it themselves, teaching students how to deal with bullies while they themselves bully families through hard-sell marketing, intimidation and unscrupulous business practices.Furthermore, I believe that kicking and punching are unhelpful and antisocial ways of dealing with bullies and other problems that arise in life. Strength training, cardio fitness and balance are great, but bullying should not be handled through physical violence but rather through involvement of trusted adults.
parks is great, we have had nothing but positive experience so far, my children have become more focused, plus they really care about teaching, I like their facility its clean, very nice and well kept. We have been going for over 2 yrs now.
