AT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER YOU ARE NOT GOING TO FIND HIDDEN FEES FOR ANYTHING.
2) WILL THERE BE ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT THE STUDENT WILL BE ENCOURAGED OR REQUIRED TO BUY?
3) WHAT ARE YOUR GROUNDS FOR CANCELLING THE CONTRACT?
Remember the person with the contract can assure you of anything and everything, but if it is not written in the contract and agreed upon by both parties then it is not true or legal. Do not take their word, no matter who they are or how honorable they purport themselves to be. That is what the contract is for, so there is no confusion on what each party is legally obligated to do. If they tell you it's okay to do something that is not in the contract, then get out a pen and write it in.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU LOSE EMPLOYMENT?
YOUR CHILD LOSES INTEREST?
4) WHO WILL BE TEACHING THE CLASSES?
Sure, for that first initial trial lesson at the contract school you will get instruction from the Grandmaster or Master, but what happens a few days or weeks down the road? Will you find out the head of the school spends more time in the office working on enrollment or sending late payment notices, rather than spending time on the floor teaching the students they already have?
AT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER ALL CLASSES ARE TAUGHT BY MASTER INSTRUCTOR JUAN CATALAN. NO OFFICE TIME. NO PHONE CALLS. ALL TIME IN CLASS IS DEDICATED TO TEACHING AND HELPING THE STUDENT PROGRESS.
Do not let them tell you what the grounds for canceling are. If it is not in the contract write it in, and if they won't let you then ask yourself one question.... WHY?
MOST IMPORTANTLY..... JUST DO NOT SIGN IT!!!!
BETTER YET JUST COME TO TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER.
LOCKED INTO A CONTRACT SCHOOL AND LONG TERM CONTRACT?
We encourage all individuals to try and work things out with their current school. However we do understand that at times that is just not possible.
In those situations, where you are looking to get out of your contract school and start fresh, please contact us and we will do what we can to help assist you in making that fresh start.
Contracts at martial art schools have become an ever growing and predominate aspect. However, most martial arts schools are not like gyms, with large amounts of overhead in building space, equipment, state of the art machines, maintenance and specialized classes with personal trainers. Remember unlike most gyms, the contract at a martial arts school is there for one reason. It is a mechanism for the school to maintain a cash flow even if the student does not attend.
TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER DOES NOT REQUIRE OUR STUDENTS TO SIGN A CONTRACT TO TAKE CLASSES.
If you call a contract school for information about pricing you will not get it. A contract school will never tell you the price for classes, beyond a one month special.
WHEN YOU CONTACT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER WE WILL TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT THE PRICING IS.
Most contract schools will give you one or two trial lessons at the most.
WHEN YOU COME IN FOR A TRIAL PERIOD AT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER YOU GET A WHOLE WEEK, NOT JUST ONE OR TWO DAYS. TRY IT FOR THE WHOLE WEEK TO GET A FEEL FOR THE CLASS STRUCTURE AND TEACHING STYLE.
Contract schools will attempt to get you to sign up for a one month special or commit to a long term contract after your trial lesson. Contract schools love the one month special. If they can get the student in for one month, even at a lower rate, the student will have become invested in a relationship with the school and the sell of the extended time period will be much easier.
Contract schools will attempt to lock you in for a 12 month, 18 month, even 36 month time period.
AT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER WE DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS RIGHT TO LOCK PEOPLE INTO SUCH LONG TERM CONTRACTS. LIFE CHANGES IN THE MATTER OF DAYS AND WEEKS AND WE WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO ADJUST AS NEEDED
Many schools will try to get you to buy sparring gear, kick pads, weapons, and other equipment even when the student is not ready for them.
AT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER WE ENCOURAGE STUDENTS ONLY TO PURCHASE EQUIPMENT WHEN THEY ARE READY, AND WE WILL NEVER OVER CHARGE FOR ANY PURCHASE.
1) WHAT ARE THE TOTAL FEES FOR CLASSES?
Besides the monthly tuition what other hidden fees has the contract school not told you about? Are there testing fees? How much? Do they increase as the student goes up in rank?
THE TESTING FEES AT TAEKWONDO ATHLETIC CENTER DO NOT INCREASE AS THE STUDENT PROGRESSES AND ARE FAR LOWER THAN OTHER MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOLS.
