Review of Service

Well, at first glance the place looks a little cheesy because it is small, next to a liquor store, and the sign just says KARATE. When you go inside you see that the place is actually a lot longer than it is wide, so it is actually not as small as it looks from the outside. The equipment they have is modern and is top of the line for martial arts. They have speedbags, punching bags that have their own base, rather than being hung from the ceiling, and they have protective gear available too.

The instructors are all well-trained and most have competed in their respective marital art. They are friendly, attentive, and most of all, they do not tolerate any behavior that is disruptive or that is dangerous.

The only bad thing about this place is the price and the fact that you must enter into a one year contract. That means that the only way you can quit and not have to pay is to move over 25 miles away from their school. Also, the documentation needed to prove this is ridiculous. I needed a bill, a new license, and a couple of other things. After I submitted those things I was still not approved even though I moved 50 miles away.

In conclusion, if you have a lot of money and don't mind paying for something after you quit, take a chance on this place. Otherwise, I suggest just going to your local family center to learn karate. The lessons may not be as good, but if you are not intending to turn martial arts into a career, does it really matter where you learn your forms?


Beware of contracts, and eager salesman. If you don't feel comfortable having a place take the payment directly from your account, ask in advance, and when in doubt, if the price is really high, make sure they give a few free lessons for you to see if it is worth it.
