This school is designed for children. serious adult students need not apply. the price is exceptionally high. classes are taught on block scheduling. that means that each month every student learns the same material and is tested on that material for their next belt. yes this means that you could test for a brown belt with yellow belt material.

also, classes are run with the student spot method. you stand in one spot, and do everything from that spot from warmup to bow out.

shodan is reached in 2 1/2 -3 years. the head instructor is certified in ATA krav maga. however, this instruction is restricted to shodan and above. any grappling or throwing is restricted to nidan and above.

contracts range from 1 to 3 years. with pricing being 175, 150, or 125 a month. also, ata equipment must be purchased for a price of approximately 325-350 for sparring gear/gym bag/uniform. weapons have to be purchased at later dates.

with the wide range of TKD schools in west county st. louis, one should shop around before signing contracts here.
