Personally, I think telling someone you are doing a review can sometimes cause them to act out of the normal. I'm not too sure it is a good idea to tell them there is a review. For example, I am a teacher at a community college. I know that when you have someone sitting in your class to review you that you change the way you do things. You prepare more, you give your students warning before hand, you dress nicer, and you go out of your way to look good. Some colleges are actually recording every class because of this issue.
Maybe you should just act interested, go visit and train, then ask permission to post a review?"a martial art that has no rules is nothing but violence" - Kenji Tomiki

I hate what queer eye for the stright guy has done to our country
1. Black uniforms are required for adult class.
2. White uniforms are required for kids classes.
3. Advanced youth may wear black gi pants.
4. Uniforms must be clean and pressed.
5. T-shirt or sports bra may be worn under the uniform. T-shirt or sports bra must match uniform or color of current belt.
6. Black belt students may wear black, white or a combination of black, red and white.
These are the kinds of issues that having a fair review can bring to the forefront. An owner can come on and at least comment on why these things are done. Now when people google his page...guess what is going tocome up?..We see this more and more

Also FP, I don't feel you need permission to post a review.
I think you should provide a link to your review when you post. I agree with the rest of your post. I've seen it happened, been part of it, and did it when I taught.

You don't tell a restaurant you are doing a review of their food.

I agree with the posters above in that you shouldn't let them know beforehand that you're planning on doing a review because it can affect how they act.
You don't have to lie, just don't advertise the fact. You also don't have to ask permission afterwards to post about it, you are a consumer giving his opinion on a service, and they are welcome to come here and attempt to refute any points you make.

Yes I vote go in anyway. Think of it as being a secret shopper (which I do on occasion oddly enough), except you are doing it for free!. We get the review and they get some real feedback that they can use. Its up to them what they do with it. I think the word internet just threw them off, if you had been part of a magazine they wouldnt of thought twice.

Find a child!, or pay a bum a tenner or something. Or failing that go in when you know some other new people are starting.
