Totally a money making scam. We took our childfor a couple of years. Had to not only pay monthly minimum of around $90.00, and buy uniform. Every time they test to another belt it is an additional fee if they do not pass they have to retest and you have to pay the fee for testing every single time. They wanted him in "The Black Belt Club." It ended up being more expensive monthly, had to buy him a bunch of padding/equipment costing an additional $400.00. All they do is teach "forms." It is mostly for show and for parent's who have money to pay for different belts, certificates. It is not traditional martial arts by any stretch of the imagination. The reason why we kept him in is because after the initial "free" classes they make you sign a contract. I would say we spent easily close to if not more than $3,000. He learned nothing except silly forms. So, if you are looking for some real physical activity this is not where I would spend your money.
