I agree that the fact you're worried that you might 'get in trouble' for talking about your school online is a bad sign.

Ok... the prices and contract terms seem fine, but the history given for TKD ignores the significant karate influence on the style. For a deeper explanation of what people on bullshido think about WTF TKD's effectiveness, you'll find a lot of discussion of this topic already if you use the search function.

Your style cannot be inferior, your club can though.
Do they ask for absurd amounts of money ?
Is it common to have very young people graduating to black belts ?
These competitions you guys keep winning, are they full contact or point sparring ?
I think maybe these 3 might help, I didn't check the website yet so...

might i ask, what is the exact reason you're asking if you're at a mcdojang?
What examples of mcdojang type behaviour have you witnessed there?

quote taken from site:
"Julian Hatfield, 9, from Newton Aycliffe was awarded third place tournament champion, winning two gold’s for Traditional Poomse and Self Defence and a bronze for one step sparring."
McDojo? If they are letting 9 year-olds believe the new fad of "Competition Self-Defence" is actual self-defence, then yes it's a McDojo via false advertising.
what 'competition self-defence' is actually: coreographed, reverse engineered kata sequences that look cool to judges/crowd. the scoring is partially based on the 'ooohs' and 'aahhhs' of the crowd.

also, can't quite see, but does she have her thumbs inside her fist?

Sure looks like it... though I zoom in and she might just have very small thumbs.
