Thank you for reading and listening to the more rational voices here.

Thank you for demonstrating a willingness to evaluate your school in an empirical manner - that showed great sportsmanship and drive for compromise. Encouraging your various outraged boosters to do the same would be the only thing, in my opinion, you could do to appear more collected.
As for the number of schools Kai has reviewed, he has actually done 3, counting yours, and he reviewed his current school before decided to attend there. Of course, only time will tell if he reviews more over time, but I don't believe he set out to do any sort of hatchet job on your school - he simply stated his opinion regarding its ability to meet his needs. Since he was shopping for a more contact oriented program, which by your admission you don't make a point of offering, the only substantial point of disagreement between you seems to be his tone.
Finally, we are always interested in new and open points of view about the current state of karate and other traditional martial arts - PLEASE join the discussion in the main discussion boards and share some of your ideas (be forwarned - this is a lightly moderated forum and sometimes things get a little heated).
I'll put my pants on after you pull your head out of your ass.

See, not a single one of you so called "supporters" have done that yet.
All you've done is piss and moan. Take a page from 3TMA who finally described her classes while, critiquing Kai.
I can respect that, the rest of you fail. Telling life stories makes you a crackpot. Your life and how you grew up has nothing to do with a school review.
Thankfully, Ms Pitassi submitted a review that, while more generous than mine, was also reasonable. As for the other users... Would somebody PLEASE think of the children? I know it's policy to not remove review scores, but COME ON. Really? Other than Ms Pitassi's and mine, no other review has the slightest bit of info on the school!
I guess we'll have to wait and see about that video.
longbeach's conduct is depressing. Judging by the sub-basic level of sarcasm used, I can only imagine the horror her/his child must go through. It's just sad.

Some things are, at least, 100% certain:
'superstar' and 'longbeach' are posting from the same computer. The IP traces to no where near this school. Sycophants are douche bags. No soup for you and you!
You don't live there NOW. Maybe you did move BEFORE. But, regardless of what you remember BEFORE, Airman Kai did a review NOW. You two didn't even have the courtesy of relaying your own personal experiences with this school BEFORE. Do you even have any, or are you only interested in ad-hominem?

Reason: corrected mistake in user reference
We need someone to infiltrate this school ninjer style. Train with them, date their women, learn the ways, then compile a report.
Where is Bunyip when you need him?
I wonder if they mostly have kids in the school, or was that a random influx of soccer moms?
sorry to double post...didn't save the review. I wonder how old their youngest black belt is?
Good Afternoon. I would like to start my initial post by stating I am a current student of 3TMA. I will not be commenting on any particular post, nor will I be submitting a rating in the overall sense of fairness. I will state that I have been in sevral programs over the course of my life, ranging from the hard core to the "pure sport". I can state that I find the classes at 3TMA to be very "alive" and active. I can state that the instructors are knowlegdable and well trained in their art. I can state that I enjoy my time in Dojo immensely. I will state that I have a sense of pride in the Dojo. I will also state that I have one of my daughters enrolled with me. What I do care about is how I feel. In the end the opinions of anyone not in my family do not affect my life or anyone else, as the case may be. However, this is just my opinion. As I have stated opinions affect no one. I leave you now with these thoughts to ponder. In the end will a resolution one way or the other truly make anyones life more complete. Will any of the opinions posted put food on your tables or pay your bills. I fully accept that mine will not. Yours in brother/sisterhood CS.
It's been about a week with no word back from Ms Pitassi, so I must assume that she has decided not to allow any cameras into her school. If this truly is dead in the water, then I (of course) stand by my orginal review.
I just think the mindset of these people is different. I think it is great that the owner came on to defend her school. Maybe after this has cooled down we can shuffle out the garbage posts and make it more reasonable. Perhaps just Kai's original review and the owner responses.
ranging from the hard core to the "pure sport"
