The reason this place has so many bad reviews is due to the fact that the owner him self is extremely cocky and rude! I see they included their own comment in order to try and help their rating but, the fact remains that reviews DO NOT LIE! Parents DO NOT make the mistake of enrolling your child at this school. It may have been great back when it was first established but today it is HORRIBLE! The owner himself is the problem. I registered my kids for summer camp and they didn't even complete the week because i refuse to take them back!

Me and my son's father were excited about enrolling our son. He is very hyper and needed this. However they are so unorganized!!!! Once my son received certain amount of tips (which parents never receive any chart to go by) he was suppose to be promoted to his yellow belt. They kept egging this on "next class you get tested an a yellow belt". After the 5th class of him being eligible for the yellow belt I spoke to one of the instructors he promised me at his next class he will receive his yellow belt and that it was the classes mistake. His father brought him 2 days later only to be told "no he needs 2 more strips of different colors". My poor 6 year old has been looking forward to this for 2 weeks now and NOTHING!!!!! They are ridiculously unorganized. I signed the 6 month program and once that is up WE WILL NO LONGER COME BACK TO THIS FACILITY!!!!!!!!!! they need either extra help or an additional class because I've counted as many as 30 in the 3-7 year old class and they cannot handle that. I wish I could get out of it sooner but you know..... contact :( -displeased mother Roxanne Vazquez
The worse place to enroll children. I gave one star because the system didnt let me leave the star in blank. This place doesnt deserve any respect. They only look for money...is all what matter to them. The Korean owner want to play you as a fool when you brake the contract when you notice something is wrong with "the school" . Children dont learn anything...with 3 or 4 years you can see them with orange or bigger belts but if you see them in class, those children dont know how to kick or punch, or even to stay in equilibrium. Parks charge you for everything. They offer you "a deal" if parent enroll the children that day, not the next day...you know why?? Because if you go home, you can notice everything is a fraud. That school is a robbery!!! RUN AND STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!!!!Imagine your child enjoying the University at age of 3 with the knowledge of a 3 years old kid. What do they know?? You got the answer...NOTHING. The kids receive the paper to test not because they learned some techniques but because they attended a couple of classes and they want to charge you the $50. Is just MONEY MONEY and MONEYThey lie in your face when you go to fight for your rights as a customer, as a parent.That place is a shame, honestly. I feel really sorry when parents are caught in the grip of Parks Martial Art. The owner is a robber
This is THE WORST PLACE!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!Was this helpful? Yes No Respond
I did not like that they were deceitful in the pricing. Signed up both of my daughters and 4 nephews for a six week special of $69 each with a free uniform. I read the complete special becuase I was looking for the fine print but there was none. After paying for the classes, I received an email saying each child must purchase saftey gear that could only be purchased there for $65. This should have been listed with the pricing in order for me to have made an informed purchase.
DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD! My daughter was going to the Plantation location. It was time for renewal and we paid over $600. We found out within 1 week that they were closing the Plantation location and relocating. We immediately requested a refund. There were several emails back and forth and long story short the owners refused a refund. We disputed the charge with the credit card company and luckily we were able to get a full refund, but it took like 2 months. While my child was there, she moved up to an orange belt but I felt she really learned nothing. They simply try to move kids up in belt level so they can make more money. THIS COMPANY IS DISHONEST AND UNETHICAL.
Premier Martial Art's has the best Martial Art's program in Pembroke pines and they have the best adult and child program for self defense
I have been here over two year with m family and we have learned so much. We had set a goal to become a black belt together as a family. Parks has been an positive impact on all of us, we are very proud. I personally like the fact they are professional and organized. The instructors are great and encouraging.
First my kids started then the Master said instead of sitting and watching "why don't you try it" and my kids encouraged us so we went for it. Now we all have set a goal together as family to accomplish a Black Belt a achievement that we can say " we did it together " Not to mention its made a difference in my children's self esteem. The Masters are an inspiration and Parks family story is an inspiration, coming from Korea with nothing and having what they have today, it's a success story. We love Parks
