They kicked my 4 year old out (and not because of his behavior): My 4 year old son was a student for about 2 months. When we signed him up they gave us an option of once or twice a week. We chose twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Almost always he was the only child to show up on Thursday, because he was the only child of about 8-10 that was signed up for twice a week. We had a newborn at the time and were having a hard time making the Thursday class (half the time we had to have relatives bring him). We decided to go to one class a week program. We actually would have pulled him out totally, since the program itself was lacking (see below), but my son liked it, he made some new friends and the parents were great. When we went in to pay for the once a week (~ $87) we were told we could not go back to once a week. They were no longer allowing once a week. I told them that we could not come twice a week so if we could not drop down to once a week, we would not be able to come at all. They did not bend. I pleaded since my son liked it and he made new friends; they said no. I asked about the other children, how come they did not have to go to twice a week. They said they were grandfathered. I asked how come my child wasn%u2019t grandfathered also (I remind, he is 4 years old), they said, "Sorry, that is the new policy". I asked "Why would you do that to a 4 year old?"; they blamed us for living too far away. They then said that we could pay the 2 time a week rate and if I only came once a week, that was up to us. Then I said "wow you really don't care about the kids, huh?" which they said "Its always about the kids." They obviously did not realize that the proved that it wasn%u2019t about the development of the children when they gave us the OK to come only once a week but pay for twice a week. Also, they do not really do any karate, at least at this age. They would sit and read books and most of the time was spent setting up and taking down the activities, but it took so long they really were not doing much exercise, and no karate. They are only there for 1/2 hour at $137/month, so save your money, you can do it much more at home. If you want your children in an activity with other children, there are much better options than Quest Martial Arts, and a much better value. Plus they probably won%u2019t kick your child out.
