oH my god!!!
You are getting ripped off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Big time!!!!!!!!
But it sounds like those guys did their homework on how to make money!!!!!!!!!!! sounds that what they teach really sucks!!!!!!
When you teach or sell quality you do not need to make absurd contracts to make money. When you are honest and sell quality money comes on it's own. This guy sounds like he pressures people into signing.
Get out if you can lie!! Say you are moving to another state!

I think you meant "How they teach really sucks". He didn't mention that the training sucked, (when he could train). I think it's more how they are sucking him in for more money.

Broken nose,
I don't have a dog in this fight, but if I were you, I'd take a copy of that contract to a local district attorney and ask him if they're breaking any laws on intimidation or coercian. Sounds to me like they have an open-ended contract that allows them to change the rules and you're supposed to "fall in line" with whatever they come up with.

Consumer credit laws don't allow a lot of "tricksters" to get by with things they used to be able to do, and you certainly shouldn't have to go to bankruptcy court because these guys think they can just reach in your wallet every time they get another idea. Contracts need to be very specific in whats supplied and who's responsible for payment, and any more, the "extras" probably need to be spelled out as well.

I know if I was getting 1/3 of a class on the bag, I'd tell them I only owed them 1/3 of the payment since I couldn't practice. I'm sure they have you pegged as a troublemaker already, since you bucked up in class and walked out, so you probably won't be getting any specific help in the study of the art.

Seriously, I think I'd look into whether or not they're breaking consumer credit laws with their business, and that should give your lawyer all he needs to get your contract rescinded.

Just a thought.

You sure as hell can post what school it is. That's free speech my friend. As long as everything you are saying is TRUE than it is NOT slander.

What exactly is your problem with KM? Sounds like you have a problem with the school and it's instructors, not KM the style.You can't blame the system because you have unfortunately signed a contract with a McDojo.

Glock,

I don't think he was blaming the system, but in fact the school. At least that has been my take on it.

Really? His title sounds otherwise. It doesn't say defending your wallet against this school or that it says against Krav Maga. Maybe I am reading to much into that and his original post.

Yeah, good point. The title is misleading but after reading the thread is seem the problem is the school. Maybe he should change the title if he is still around...

The title is mis leading but he wants to know if other KM schools do this. Anyways you grab your copy of the contract and read everything. Be prepared to go thru a law suit if necessary, I've heard of people to that extreme to get out of a bad contract and get back their hard earned money. But KM isn't the only MA that does this sort of thing.
