I went to the winners for life in Concord and since they're just a big chain this review applies to all Winners for Life franchises.

They lure you into a contract with deceitful recruiting practices - they don't mention one word about the $400 worth of equipment you're expected to purchase. If you don't purchase the equipment your kid will likely be punched in the face by a much bigger kid since they aren't under enough supervision while sparring. Not to mention she learned nothing in the month and a half we sent her.

My daughter is 6. We're letting her try out different things too see what she likes. When she told us she doesn't want to go back and would rather go home after school and play with her little brother instead of going to there and getting hit in the face we politely went to them and requested that our contract be terminated. They refuse to even consider just letting us go on our way. They are trying to force us to pay 147/month even though she doesn't want to go back?! A common sense approach from a business with any shred of decency would say "We understand" we'll let you out of the contract since you don't come and your membership is costing us nothing." But that's why I think they're total scammers. They won't do that. And their belt system is a scam too in my opinion as well as many others who have posted reviews. They don't complete with other schools or let other schools complete against them which can only lead one to assume that it's due to their sub-par, watered-down version of martial arts. I would give anything now to have gone anywhere else. Do not sign a contract with this large chain unless you're ready to pay an additional $400 just for equipment (not to mention all the other fees that aren't included in the monthly membership) be held to it come Hell or high water whether or not you're 5 year old simply decides it's not for her.


It's a total scam. Hopefully their business model will be exposed and they will go bankrupt.  I would expect that at a county fair.  Not at a place that preaches honesty , integrity and self respect.
