Karate America pressured me in a contract Internet
*UPDATE Employee: make it right
during the summer new rules were made enabling another student to achieve his black belt within 10 months of his contract. Now that student has his black belt and will not have to sign additional contracts to reach his blackbelt. When my son was working torward his camoflage belt he had achieved two stripes until the instructor left and a new instructor came in he was not credited for his third stripe. The new instructor would not acknowledge his stripes so he made him start all over agian on the same belt.He made him lose those stripes. They have had eight instructors at that school (beache) in less than a year some of which were not certified to teach. mostly high school instructors. one instructor pulls certain kids to the side to teach individusld instructions in my opinion personal instructions should be private lessons. I had to take my child out of town for one month. upon my return i learned that an individual went from an orange belt to a blue belt in one months time . as per contract belt graduation requires 90 days of instruction. my son was only able to recieve four belts in in a year so i was made sign a 2 yr contract in order for my son to achieve his bleack belt. now they changed the rules evey 25 classes you can achieve a belt.... my son went everyday for the first year to three or more classes. All of these discepencenies has totally discouraged my son from wanting to continue. It looks like to me having such a turnover with that many instuctors ( not showing these children stability) and changing rules in the contract i signed would release me from the contract. I will also let eveyone know what a decieving lier and ripoff ATA is. It is a money making gimmick all for them it is not about the children. They don't bother to tell you you have to buy hundreds of dollars of equipment neither.......they tell you that after they sucker you in the contract... very deceiving........
