Prime example of what NOT to sign when looking into a MA School
Many of you have had a chance to read through the article I wrote on the adhesive provisions typically found in long term martial arts instruction contracts. If you haven't here...
During my research, interviews, and writing of the article I was not able to get my hands on a good example of an awful MA Contract from the consumer's perspective. As fate would have it, I was recently sent a great example of an oppressively adhesive MA Contract that I have appropriately edited to remove reference to the school name and address as well as any reference that may link the contract to the student who provided it to me.
Here is a link to the .pdf which shows the contract in its entirety for the edification of MA consumers who care enough to learn more for the protection of there hard earned money.
Now, I know there are tons of these type of Martial Arts contracts circulating throughout the nation. Many of the members of this forum may have one in their possession now.
I would like to have this thread evolve into a stockpile of bad MA Contracts to be used as a reference board of sorts for those who want to know what to look for.
If you have a MA contract that you would be willing to post on this thread Please send it via PM to me so that it can be reviewed by Bullshido legal and hopefully posted in this thread.
People submitting the contracts can remain completely anonymous should they wish to do so which is why the contract should be sent via PM.
Please do not trash up this thread with any armchair lawyering concerning your "opinion" of a particular contract or example. However, personal experiences in dealing with your particular contract may be informative to others who are in a similar situation.
IMPORTANT: Neither myself, Sam Browning, or Mr_Mantis will be providing legal advice TO ANYONE regarding the particulars of your, or anyone else's, dispute or disagreement with a particular MA Contract or School. If you have a contract issue, I strongly recommend that you contact an attorney who is a member of the Bar in the State in which you live.
