Pros: Excellent teachings for Kids

Cons: none

These guys are nothing but crooks and all of the instructors are no talents who could not place if they competed in the national tournament. I to was conned into signing a contract and was taught nothing of use. I moved up in rank to brown belt and i can tell you the belt is worthless. I have moved on to other schools and have experienced the difference in what true martial art. It was a complete shock to find out my brown belt from Talamantez was only equal to a white belt at another school. I have been able to move on gain brown belt status at other schools and competed in national tournaments and placed 1st , 2nd and 3rd. I can tell no one from talamantez school, including the instructors would be able to compete and place.

Dear Mr. Talamantez,

I wanted to take the time to write this letter and say thank you, it has been a thrill for me to see my kids pursue Martial Arts. Being a former student myself, I know it is all about the way it is taught. I believe that your method teaches confidence, respect and most importantly that Katate is a self defense tool; not a toy. I look forward to the growth experience as Clint and Ashley both work towards their black belts. Thank you for your support and leadership.

When my two children started classes at Talamantez Family Karate Center, I noticed an immediate improvement in their behavior and self-control. Their school work improved and their focus sharpened. Their increased sense of respect and confidence would make any parent proud. I soon decided to take Classes with them. It's one of the best choices I have ever made. Observing the class and progress of my children was great, but I never realized just how challenging and fun Karate can be! I have more energy, less stress, and most importantly ; a positive attitude. In my opinion, Talamantez Karate is more than just an outstanding Karate school. It is a way to strengthen body and mind while crushing obstacles and boundaries in your life, whether real or perceived. We are very fortunate to have an academy of this caliber so close to home.

As a young man, one of my goals was to be a Black Belt in Karate. I believe that you are never to old to achieve your goals, so I looked into the different schools in the area. I enrolled in Talamantez Karate, at the recommendation of my nephews Master, and it was a great decision. The workouts leave me with a feeling of accomplishment, I can do things that I never dreamed of doing at my age. I have more confidence in myself and my abilities. Master Talalmantez and his instructors truly care about their students, and their students well-being. They have a passion for Karate and they share that passion with their students.

Where do I start here; I took my son there and signed him up because he really liked the instructor there that gave him a free lesson. It quickly turned into a bottomless money pit. My son did very well during the workouts, but before I knew it, he was given an orange belt (another $60 payment). My son was nowhere near ready to advance. He was not even shown as much as how to throw a jab. Still proud of what my son was doing (not of what he was being tought however) an instructor made an appointment with me to discuss my son's progress. According to him, he was ready for the "Leadership Program" due to his performance. They must have talked to every parent in the place becuase before I knew it all but my son and another girl were in the "Leadership Program". This program doubled in monthly expense and required a long 5-year contract with them. That is why every kid that went in there was offered this program and almost the entire "Leadership Program" still knew nothing about karate or even paying attention to their workout. I knew very quickly that I had made a big mistake signing up there.

Not long after this, my son had a blue belt and still didn't know how to throw a jab, cross, or any type of kick (but another $60 fee).

This karate school is a scam and I can't believe this place is still in business. I also can't believe these possitive reviews. I really think that they have to be written my people associated with the school.

Other members that reviewed this place called it a "rip-off". I can't agree more. This place is a RIP-OFF!

All you ever hear when you're there is BLACK BELT THIS AND BLACK BELT THAT.

When you don't agree to pay double to be in the "Leadership Program" you are told that you are holding your child back and that there is no value to continuing unless you do this. If I was told before I signed up that there would be no value to it unless I paid $300+ per month with a 5-year commitment, I would never had done it. This is told to you after you start.

I haven't taken my son there for 5 months and they still automatically withdraw $150 from me every month. That's fine, because I just have to pay it out, but if someone felt there was no value to what I do and stopped using my service becuase of it, I would have too much pride to charge for it. Not Talamantes Karate. Absolutely no pride.

I already made a formal complain to the appropriate agencies that the instructors are not skilled enough to handle kids. They may be great karate instructors but have no skill in handling kids from as young as 4 years old to 12 years old.

I remember when my son was a boy with a bag full of dreams and a pocket full of excuses. Today my son is in the United States Navel Academy. I admired and respected children who were instructed by Mr. T- who have grown up to be leaders in our community. One good thing I know about this family Busn. is they make you feel part of there family- The gratitude can never be summed up in a dollar amount as to the pride a parent has to see improvement in your child??s confidence level, character, positive outlook in himself and in others, Master T has given our children a new way of thinking that which enlightens and calms there little mind and spirit - He rewards students with the many belts, anticipating the day they would be honored with the achievement from there dedication and hard work in becoming a Black Belt. Its a fact Master T's students have been students who have been recognized for scholastic achievements in school- but a quality about these students with the gift of Leadership they are born with or a behavior learned in Master T Karate, excelling scholastically is just as vital to them as air they breath- Thank You Mr. T and Staff- all who are part of this family- for it takes a village to raise our children- with a leader like Master T- He will make you a proud parent .

Our son began training with Master Talamantez over five years ago at the Encino Park Community Center. He was only 4 years old at the time and full of energy. We have always appreciated the time Master T took with him and the other children to instill qualities that are sometimes lacking in our society today (respect of your elders, self confidence and the ability of visualization to accomplish great things throughout life). He moved to the Bulverde School when it opened and began training with Alex Talamantez (Mister T to us).

Over the years, we have seen our son grow not only in karate skills, but also in his life skills. One of best examples I can remember is from the Encino Park Halloween festival a couple of years ago. Mister T took our son and some of the other students to perform and as a part of the performance they broke boards. It took our son a couple of attempts to break his board, but he did. Afterward, Mister T interviewed each student on their performance. When he asked him about breaking the board, he took the microphone and began addressing the audience on the importance of continuing to try to reach your goals ??if you don??t succeed the first time? Keep trying and never give up?. I was amazed that an 8 year-old child could speak to a group of 20 ?? 30 people with no fear. Another example of this was at a graduation at the Bandera School this year. Our son talked to the students and parents about his struggle to break a brick during his 3rd degree black belt test and how he kept trying and eventually succeeded.

We are so pleased that our son has been involved with Talamantez Karate and the things he has learned from yourself and Mister T. It is rewarding to watch our son begin to teach other young students as they first begin their journey to becoming a black belt. It is also exciting to hear him talk about wanting to continue on with his karate and become an instructor like Master T and Mister T. Recently, we have seen some negative things written about Talamantez Karate online and we felt the need to write this review to share our experience of almost six years with your school. The journey our son has taken while becoming a black belt has been an investment of both time and money, but we believe it is an investment that will reward him throughout his lifetime. We have recommended the school to all we know and we will continue to do so.

Recently, we have seen some negative things written about Talamantez Karate online and we felt the need to write this review to share our experience of almost six years with your school. The journey our son has taken while becoming a black belt has been an investment of both time and money, but we believe it is an investment that will reward him throughout his lifetime. We have recommended the school to all we know and we will continue to do so.

Pros: Instructors that really care about their students.

Cons: A little expensive, but well worth it.

I FOUND THREE GOOD BLOGS ABOUT THIS BUSINESS FROM THE FOLLOWING USERS: ZENWARRIOR57, KCCHARLIE, AND JOHNATHANBAILEY - GUESS WHAT - THEY ALL WORK FOR TALAMANTEZ KARATE SO OF COURSE THEY WILL LIE AND SAY THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE! HOW SAD IS IT WHEN YOU NEED TO GET YOUR OWN EMPLOYEES TO COUNTER ALL THE BAD THINGS THAT ACTUAL CONSUMERS HAVE TO SAY.? WHAT LOSERS! I KNOW THAT THEY ARE EMPLOYEES BECAUSE i WAS PART OF THEIR INSTRUCTOR TRAINING PROGRAM. THEY ARE LIARS AND DON'T CARE ABOUT TEACHING ANYONE KARATE. THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY AND AN OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT AT THAT. I WAS IN A CONTRACT FOR OVER $14,000 FOR ME AND MY KIDS - WHAT A FREAKIN IDIOT I WAS TO SIGN THAT STUPID PAPER! I LOOKED THEM UP ON THE INTERNATIONAL SHURI RYU WEBSITE AND THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH THEM. ONLY TWO SENSEI'S HERE IN SAN ANTONIO ARE - BUT IT IS NOT THESE PEOPLE! ALSO THE DAD CLAIMS TO BE A STUDENT OF THE LATE ROBERT A TRIAS - I EMAILED THE ISA TO VERIFY IF THIS WAS TRUE. I WILL BLOG AGAIN ABOUT THAT WHEN I FIND OUT. BUT THEY DO JUST TAKE YOUR MONEY - I HAD TO QUIT BECAUSE WE WERE IN FORECLOSURE AND THEY SAID IT WOULD BE OK - PAUL TALAMANTEZ JR. SAID NOT TO WORRY THAT THEY WOULD WORK WITH ME THAT MY HOUSE WAS MORE IMPORTANT AND HE LIED TO ME! HE PUT ME IN COLLECTIONS AND NOW THEY WILL NOT EVEN ACCEPT MY KIDS BACK - SO I REFUSE TO PAY IF THEY REFUSE TO PROVIDE A SERVICE - I JUST WANTED THIS OFF OF MY CREDIT BECAUSE HE VERBALLY AGREED NOT TO HOLD THIS AGAINST ME. CURSE THE DAY I TRUSTED THEM TO BE HONEST AND DECENT PEOPLE. PLEASE ANYONE THAT HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY THIS WRITE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. THE ADDRESS IS OFFICE OF ATTY GEN. CONSUMER PROTECTION DIVISION 115 E TRAVIS STE 925 78205. THERE ARE LAWS THAT PROTECT THE CONSUMER AND THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS. DON'T LET THESE PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH THIS. I AM PRINTING ALL OF THE BLOGS AND MAILING THEM ALONG WITH MY COMPLAINT. THEY TOTALLY S&*! AND THEY ARE COWARDS AND LIARS! THE CONSUMER SHOULD HAVE RIGHTS TOO IF THE PRODUCT THEY ARE PURCHASING IS NOT WHAT THEY EXPECTED, I MEAN EVEN WHEN YOU BUY A CAR OR ANYTHING YOU CAN TAKE IT BACK IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH IT, SIGNING THE CONTRACT SHOULD ALSO BE BINDING TO THEM TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES THEY SAY THEY CAN, ANYONE CAN GO TO A GYM AND DO PUSH UPS AND SIT UPS AND RUN AND KICK AND KARATEPUNCH. WHERE WAS THE KARATE IN ALL OF THAT? HONESTLY SOME ONE NEEDS TO STAND UP TO THESE FRAUDS! I HAVE NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS PLACE AT ALL - THEY HAVE NO PROBLEMS HOUNDING PEOPLE TO SIGN UP AND TAKE THERE MONEY BUT WHEN IT COMES TIME FOR THEM BE MEN AND KEEP THEIR WORD, THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE. AND NO WONDER NEITHER OF THE SONS HAVE KIDS OF THEIR OWN SO DO YOU THINK THEY HONESTLY CARE ABOUT ANYONE ELSE'S KIDS. HOW WOULD THEY LIKE FOR SOMEONE TO USE THEIR CHILDREN IF THEY HAD ANY AS BAIT TO PREY ON THEIR WALLETS. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO! BEWARE AND NEVER GO THERE - EVER!!! MAYBE WE CAN GET TOGETHER AND GET AN ATTORNEY AND TAKE THEM TO COURT - THAT IS A GOOD POSSIBILITY - BLOG BACK IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED PLEASE! GETTING TOGETHER WOULD BE BETTER THAN JUST ONE PERSON DOING IT ALONE. AGAIN THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS AND THIS CANNOT KEEP HAPPENING. RATING IS ZERO ,BUT YOU HAVE TO PICK ONE TO MOVE ON - BUT RATING IS ZERO!
