Karate America is unprofessional. I do not take their Taekwondo classes. I take the Krav Maga and Warrior X-Fit classes.
Classes regularly start late, causing class time to be cut in half, like tonight. Seems like Taekwondo classes come before all other classes.
Instructor for Warrior X-fit does not know how to do the exercises correctly. We do certain exercises to advance.
Instructor for Krav Maga class has been absent at begining of class, sometimes missing half the class, due to signing up new students.
I will finish my contract because I like the people and have fun.
It is extremely expensive after buying all gear, they don't go through the prices when you sign the contract. Something that costs $10 on Amazon.com, costs $15-$20 at Karate America, and you have to buy their equipement due to insurance policies.
If you want out of your contract, you may be able to claim false advertisement.
Karate America does not teach Karate. Karate is a form of martial arts that was created in Okinawa. What they teach is Taekwondo, they recite the American Taekwondo Association oath at the begining of each class. Taekwondo comes from Korea, and is basically kick boxing.
I don't know if that is a legal way to get out of your contracts.
