    Well there don't seem to be any wacky prices or contract terms, so I wouldn't say there was any evidence that it was particularly McDojo. The history section doesn't seem to mention the influence of shotokan on TKD though, going more for the nationalistic spin that TKD is a 'pure' korean style with ancient korean roots.

    I missed that one. Child black-belts are a bad sign. Still, the prices and contract terms seem ok.

    Well you do have the obligatory "5 Masters" who are teaching at your school.

    But overall it just looks like typical TKD...

    What's the minimum age at the school to be a Black Belt?

    Mysterious W, what are you worried about in regards to the pic? If its out on the web people can post links to things.

    What are these repurcussions that you are worried about?

    You started this thread with your question. Perhaps you suspect something about your club? Could you detail for us why your club is a Mcdojo?

    If in fact you are afraid of "consequences" could this make your club a Bullshido club?

    Ok sure, but you realise that you just removed one of the main ways people will judge your school, at least for first impressions?
