My daughter and I was taking ATA Taekwondo classes in another state and loved the teachers and forms. Victory Martial Arts advertised themselves as an ATA Taekwondo school. When I called, I was told we could take a free class. When we arrived to get more information on the class schedule, I was instead talked into signing a contract for the classes. The man selling the classes used an iPad. He briefly showed me the monthly amount and had me sign on the iPad. When I asked for a printout of my contract, he told me they would send me a copy. We were disappointed in our first class, as they did NO forms. They did jumping jacks, situps, pushups and other exercises. The teacher was not nice to the kids, making snotty remarks and yelling at them – one kid cried. In another class, we were doing pushups. The teacher came up to the woman next to me and straddled her. He then sat down on her bottom. I could not believe my eyes – very inappropriate behavior. It is definately not the respectful environment we are accustomed to in martial arts. When I expressed my concerns to the manager about the classes and lack of actual ATA Taekwondo forms, he said, “Tough. You have a contract and you can’t get out of it!”. I was never given a copy of the contract. I sent a certified letter cancelling the membership. It is now almost three years later and attorney’s are calling me for over $9,000 in membership fees. All they care about is getting you to sign a contract, not giving you a copy or telling you about cancellation policies, and getting money. The do not provid a family friendly environment, where one is taught respect nor do they actually teach you ATA forms. .
