    Revolution Martial Arts Melbourne Australia fined for ripping off staff.

    School fined for under payment of staff. Unable to find school website, if it even has one. Smells like a McDojo...

    "FORMER operators of a martial arts fitness centre have been dealt a serious blow by the Fair Work Ombudsman, fined almost $46,000 after some staff were paid as little as 73 cents an hour.
    Revolution Martial Arts, operated by Melbourne man David Auty, was fined in the Federal Court after complaints lodged by employees that alleged he underpaid them a total of $67,320 between July 2009 and April 2012.
    More than $64,000 of the underpayments were related to 12 trainees aged between 15-21 at the time who were completing training certificates."

    There is some conflicting information in search engine results.

    There is one location listed in Ferntree Gully which I can confirm first-hand is no longer in operation. The telephone number for this location has additionally been disconnected.

    There is however another location in Boronia/Bayswater (about two miles away) listed in a number of smaller business directories, but there is no answer on the telephone number listed.

    There is another location which is listed in the White Pages directory and a further postal box location listed in the Yellow Pages directory.

    I had a look around on google and there where some mixed reviews from link websites. No actual club website. Perhaps David Auty pulled the site, if he had one, due to the legal action. Ripping off kids who are most likely teaching a few classes for you is never a good look.

    It appears that David Auty is now operating through XFC Bayswater (http://www.facebook.com/pages/XFC-Ba...12493688826698).

    Yea, not sure if it's Mcdojo but it certainly isn't good not to pay your employees
