You're not seriously suggesting that we believe you don't know of the whole slew of ways you can put a stop to this: issuing a stop-payment order with the card-issuer (bank or otherwise), canceling the card outright and setting up another one, and so on...?

I found a facebook page called Sport kickboxing academy aka kikara screwed us, it has ex employees and students, and i think their old accountant on it. please read before you sign up.
SKA is actually a great organization unlike the Kikara background that may have been there. Under the restructuring many things had changed including getting rid of all previous money grabbers. Now only the best survive. There are four great schools instead of having 8 OK schools. To have spread out kikara so far may had been a mistake, but they now fixed it by concentrating all efforts in to four schools which are far beyond many past schools. I have personally been in over 5 different martial arts organizations and I find that SKA is the greatest of all I have been with. All others were money grabbers and ever since I have started up with these guys it has been the exact opposite. They have been loyal and upfront with with all questions and answered everything with respect. It is unfortunate that some people have had problems but the majority of people feel different. There might be maybe a hundred of people who have had problems but this organization is over 30,000 members so that is still a very small percentage of people who have had problems. Dont judge this martial art until you try it for yourself!
i think that the money they tried to rip off from my family and the 400 others speaks for itself. I have talked to all the senior staff while trying to get my oney back after they closed the school wiht no notice for non payment of rent. They all said the same BS to my face, they promised to pay us back, but it was always BS. Sounds to me like you have already fallen for their line of BS. Do yourself a favour and get out of your contract before they bankrupt the whole company. The ony thing that has changed is the name. I have talked to a dozen ex-employees, some of which are still waiting for settlement of unjust firings. You should also ask the ceo about the pending 300k dollar lawsuit against him from investors he ripped off in maple ridge and chilliwack. But as I know him and his breed he will just lie to our face.
good luck getting your money back, hopefully you used a visa like us.
Well the one on Merivale used to be Kikara, but now changed it's name. Franchise problems I'm guessing.
