Usa Taekwondo Center - Monument, CO 80132 Be forewarned. Deplorable sales tactics and bullying Monument Colorado
Be forewarned. Master Lee's US Taekwondo Center in Monument is little more than a belt factory designed to maximize the dollars extracted from each student, regardless of the student's progress in their various programs.
As many others have commented, and I'm sure many parents and their children have experienced, Master Lee has trained his staff in the ways of deplorable sales tactics. The most egregious of which is the "Black belt club" pitch, where parents are pressured to sign a ridiculously onerous and unnecessary contract in the presence of their children. In essence, you either sign a 3-year $6,000+ commitment, or your child is made to feel like you don't believe in them. It puts parents and their children in an awful position and is a disgraceful sales tactic.
And once you've signed the contract, the high-pressure sales pitches for donations and purchases beyond the $180 / month commitment are never ending. Your child will be constantly made to feel as though they aren't committed to Master Lee and the Center if they don't pay up. In short, Master Lee and his staff have figured out how to turn the otherwise noble values of respect and subservience, rightfully integrated into most martial arts programs, into a psychological money making tool.
And as a parent of a student attending the Center, all I kept asking myself was, "Why?" Why does Master Lee employ these dubious sales tactics when there are so many reputable martial arts businesses that don't. Why does he need to extract so much money from each student? Why the need for so much profit?
Again, be forewarned. Do your homework. Ask questions. And whatever you do, don't let Master Lee and his staff bully you in front of your kids.
