Any Tae Kwon Do school that makes you sign a contract for one year is not a real Tae Kwon Do school. My daughter has been to a few Tae Kwon Do schools and White Lion is the only school that requires you to sign a contract. The owner is not a great example of a true master, the other office staff/instructors were nice.

White Lion does not deliver what they sell. Their afterschool program is a day care and not a Tae Kwon Do School. Their ability to properly teach children the art of Tae Kwon Do leaves a lot to be desired

refuse to communicate with me about child's progress. child is signed up for after school care. refuse to answer the phone. just a bad experience. RESPONSE: Actually, Dad and I share custody. I asked for information and I was told that all they could give me is approximate days and times for instruction. Asked for pick up and drop off times, emergency contact information. No information given.

Business Response:

In response to Katy G...Her statement is completely fabricated. I am the office manager & one of the instructors at this facility and have spoken to her on several occasions as well as communicated through email. Because the child's father has custody of the child' I am only able to disclose a certain amount of information on the account. We kept her updated on the child's progress, but did not disclose personal information on the agreement, and this is where she had an issue. We are here to protect the children and our clients. I let her know that if she needed further PERSONAL information that she would have to take that up with the father or her divorce attorney. She badgered me via email to the point of me having to place a block on her emails. This is the only time I will respond to this person. Due to the past experiences I have had with her, I am sure she will continue to write untruths and refuse to fuel her need for confrontation.

I studied at White Lion for years. What I got there has stayed with me for the last 15 years. Being that much older,I am certain that I have the skills to protect myself and others. The discipline I learned there has helped me not to give up many times. Master Mattiello taught me not to quit and helped build my self confidence. When times get rough, I still hear him telling me, "Don't you quit on me!!!" Don't quit... Self Defense... Discipline... Respect... Not bad things to learn... and they offer that. I never saw the DoJang dirty.

When children barge into a meeting between adults, isn't it wise to tteach them to wait unless there is an emergency? Otherwise they grow into adults that have no respect for anyone. Manners are vital.

SaBunNim was never rude to me... and he certainly does not let anyone in his studio be rude.

I have highly recommended this school... as I said... It stays with you... SaBuNim teaches life skills.

I would not recommend them based on several reasons
My son (6) began to question / became interested in learning Tae Kwan Do. After a while I decided to check around to see what was offered as we are fairly new to the area. I found White Lion and called the facility. The woman was pretty nice so I took the next step to inspect the facility and discuss things further. So I entered and we began talking about the programs, activities, etc.
She explained they have a ten or twelve month contract at 220 per month (or 210 for the ten). I asked if they offer a month to month contract to try it out. I didn??t want to be locked in a contract if my son ended up not liking it. She said they did. However, the lady came back and said she ??didn??t get permission?. Ok fine, I wasn??t lucky enough to get permission. Hmm but I didn??t make a big deal of it. She offered to have him go to a free class to see how he likes it. I thought to myself sure he will love it just as any kid would initially (something new and exciting), but after 6 months?
I explained to her that we came from a very high crime area and would like everyone??s full name in order to do a background/ public search (i.e. registered offenders, etc.) on the people who would be picking him up and having contact with him after school. At first this seemed ??OK? as she wrote all the names down on a piece of paper? but the lady was instructed to request permission from the individuals I would be looking up. I figured this was reasonable (but it??s not like I was asking for their social or anything personal other than full names). I was also surprised to find about 50 offenders within a five mile radius. All but one gave permission initially. I was confused on why it would be a big deal (I would figure most parents would want to know the type of people who take care/ teach of their kids). I was accused of being sneaky and she said he was concerned I was a representative from another karate place ??trying to find out their contract and prices?. Umm anyone can call and get those answers. Well I guess if she can figure out if you ??get permission??
I wasn??t impressed with the instructor??s body shape? I??m just saying. Beer gut? Come on.
On another note two children came to the front office to speak with the lady about a disagreement they were having. I was disappointed that she shoved them off and took zero time to hear their concerns. Only to just shoved them to the back and shout ??be good, I don??t want to hear about it?
The place smelled and was pretty dirty?
My final opinion is that they are just a ??glorified babysitter?; instruction is minimal and free play overdone.
I declined to continue further and she requested the list of names back. Soo I guess this would mean I had to sign a contract before I get names. Hmm ? simply ridiculous.

I have a son who started there in 2003. I have had nothing but wonderful experience with this business. My son attained his Second Degee Black belt 2005. I had a wonderful time enjoying watching my son go from someone who was slightly disrepectful to someone who was polite, curtious, well mannered, and listened and did what he was told without talking back. If i ever had a problem with my son at home i would let master mattiello know and he would have a talk with my son and my son would change. I had such a wonderful experience that i decided to start taking classes in 2005 to do something with my son. I enjoyed it very much and had to stop taking classes because i torn the ACL in my left knee before i could make my black belt. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is interesed in learning martial arts from a wonderful set of instructors.

My son and I have been attending this school for more than four years. The instruction has helped my son immensely with focus issues and self confidence. Sharing this activity with my son has most definitely increased our quality of life. Master Mattiello is a great and caring teacher. I urge every parent you cares about the physical and mental well being of their family to come check out this facility!

One of their blackbelts was featured on DATELINE NBC shortly after leaving their organization. Apparently he was a known child molestor. I have a picture of this guy putting a belt on my 8 year old daughter. THANKS GUYS!!!

I tried to quit but they said they will hold me to mycontract. I tired to offer to reduce it to only allowing my daughter to attend adult callsses with me. They refused. Now they are afer me for collections of the entire contract and i refuse to go back.

Sub part raining. It's a glorified daycare but they don't even have their daycare license so you can't write if off as such.

I have two young daughters attending this school and they have not only been fantastic with the children, they have also been fantastic with the parents. I have seen MAJOR self-esteem changes in both of my daughters and watched them excel. They have been rewarded for their success by the school and disciplined also when needed. They are both growing into young ladies that I will one day be proud to see as productive members of society!
