Write a Review
.

I attended wujido for three years because I was in their well known contract. This was when they were still in Dallas. At first I thought it was a good school, mainly because it was my first school. When one thinks of martial arts (kung fu) they think of dedication, righteousness, spirituality. Mind-Body-Soul..
Unfortunately wujido lacks these qualities. First and formost wujido is a business and harkens is a businessman. Not a school or master. When I attended the school was small and fun. About a year after I could see the greed come out. They started taking on new students to fast, which makes the style deluded. Pushing students through belts doesn't create good muscle memory for martial arts reflexes. I pretty much lost respect for the school. A year or so after the contract ran out I started getting calls from people at wujido. Like telemarketing sales calls. The lost respect was validated at that point. I continued to get these calls through the years. Asking to be taken off their list but never was because I got another call today from a chinese lady that could barely speek english telling me harkens asked her to call me and invite me to speak with him. I could tell she was reading off a piece of paper. So I asked and she said yes she was. Stuttering, knowing she said the wrong thing. Wujido trains these people like telemarketing companys would, control the conversation. They might as well have used cars out frount. I think Mark actually did sell used cars before working at wujido. When looking for a school look for humility, not one that talks themselves up.

Don't waste your time or money! I went to Wujido in the Fall of 2011 and enrolled my daughter and myself into the program. I have to admit their school was nice and clean, compared to other martial arts schools. Their sales rep, Andrew, sold me on how great there school was, so I signed up. BIGGEST MISTAKE I have ever made. The first sign should have been there b.s contract they make you sign upon enrollment, (HINT: READ THE FINE PRINT). In which you are forced to pay an entire year regardless whether you actually attend. Second, the sales pitch Andrew fed me should have been another sign that this was not a school dedicated to teach martial arts, but a business out to make a profit. From a business stand point, this is a great way to draw business in. On the other hand, not a great foundation for a school that claims to be dedicated to teach martial arts.

My daughter was 3 at the time. We attended 1 class after enrolling (and having paid a little over $500) before realizing that she didn't take to karate as I anticipated. We weren't allowed a complimentary introductory class or allowed to watch one because they maintain absolute secrecy of their teaching methods. This would have really saved me from years of dealing with these people. After our first class I spoke with Andrew and informed him that my daughter and I were not interested in continuing with the program. However, we were willing to resume her training in another year (after she had time to grow and mature a bit). It was all downhill from that point on. I started receiving collection calls, from their so called collections department. All of a sudden, their sales team became their collections department. Constant calls from Andrew drove me to speak with someone above him. I explained the situation to one of the instructors and he assured me the calls would stop. A few months passed before the calls continued, now from Mario (whom by the way wrote the previous review). Everything he wrote sounds like the b.s. he is being paid to say. Then he goes on to insult a reviewer in a desperate attempt to defend his employer. Not to mention, his courageous challenge to walk into one of the top schools in the metroplex (I seriously doubt that) and say it to his face, instead of hiding behind online anonymity, seemed astonishingly pathetic. From Mario, I come to find out that Andrew was fired for stealing money and/or unethical practices. No surprise there.

So the calls continued. Finally, I spoke with J. E. Harkins (or someone claiming to be J.E. Harkins) advised him of all the load of crap Ive been put through. He brought up that I had to honor my contract. I expressed my resentment towards his contract, and literally had to explain every conversation I had with Andrew and why I choose to opt out of his program. He then offered me the program for a month at no cost. I kindly refused his offer, and instead I offered him to simply part ways and no longer contact me. In exchange, I would write the review I am writing now. To this day, Mario is still calling

In short, Wujido is easily one of the WORST schools in the Metroplex, and anyone who says otherwise is welcome to come in and find out for yourself

I been in Wujido for about 4-5 months and I'm still a white belt. Regardless of that I think this institute is great, even though I haven't experienced the many forms they do have. I have enjoyed myself, Wujido makes you as great as you want to be. This institute is very strict on etiquette , but at the same till we still have fun. You work hard and you play hard. I can't wait till I become a yellow belt but at the same time I'm in no rush , over the short period of time I been there I have gotten stronger then I have ever been. I used to lift weights and my max bench was 275. And I feel way better now, stronger, and gained the speed I lacked from weights. I would recommend this institute for everyone that is serious about getting in shape, and learning martial arts.

I only just met on of the instructors there, but I can say this much... After doing Kenpo, boxing, kickboxing, karate etc, this school and it's teachers are the most traditional and most real out of all the martial arts I've been in. If your looking for something that isnt watered down or made to look good for profit, my gut and the guts of others as I can see who are attending this school can tell you that this is as real as it gets. Granted this isnt a school for the weak willed, or weak hearted people. You come there, and they will turn you into exactly what they said in the first place. Strong, healthy and disciplined.

Wujido will provide what it says it will--great workout, defensive skills, discipline--IF you stay in class. My advice is to read the contract carefully and be sure you are willing to make the commitment. Then do what you signed up for, and you'll have a great time at Wujido. I think Wujido would benefit from a contract clause that allows cancellation due to extenuating circumstances, like many gyms/health clubs. That said, they are working with me during my own extenuating circumstances, and I'm grateful.

The martial arts world is full of people who think what other martial arts people do is crap. The complainers I see usually only take a few classes and then proclaim Wujido is crap. They haven't even gotten past the basicsm so how would they know? It's true Dr. Harkins doesn't teach every class, but all instructors and assistant instructors are certified by Dr. Harkins and have been in the program for many years.

It could be a week or two before you're in a class taught by Dr. Harkins, but after you've been there a while you might be glad he doesn't teach every class. You learn that when he comes in, you're going to work your ass off even more than usual, it's going to be intense. For one thing, there is no sparring at Wujido unless Dr. Harkins is there, so you can be almost certain that there's going to be sparring at the end of a class that he teaches. Of course, by then you'll be dog tired and wrung out because he usually amps up the pace set by the instructors. And that's the whole point, you'll go into sparring already about to drop, but then find out that you really do have a lot left in you for the match.

Dr. Harkins thinks and rethinks all the techniques over the years, so everything he teaches is relevant to fighting and self-defense. If you don't stay there long enough to learn at least the first five forms, which takes a bare minimum of 3 years, there's no way you could go to other martial arts teachers and make any sensible comparison.

I've looked around, examined a lot of books and videos of kung fu, and I see most of what Dr. Harkins teaches here and there. He's more strict about stances, and he has a basic fist that most people don't use, but other than that there's not that much variation that's going to still be effective. Dr. Harkins teaches the finer points that make the techniques work. You learn a lot about the meaning of the movements in each form, and are also the means by which to figure it out on your own.

Wujido is not for everyone. It's slower going that some schools, because of emphasis on the basics. White belts aren't even allowed to touch each other when sparring, nor do they learn break falls. It's not a good school for people trying to feed their egos, people trying to prove something, or impatient people. It's just a good, classical style martial arts school where you can learn some excellent kung fu and find out how far you can push yourself.

This man, 'Dr.' Harkins advertises himself as a Grand Master of Kung Fu, and his staff tells people he has multiple PhD's and 'secret' techniques. The whole basis of the sale is the level of skill and prestige of the instructor, 'Dr.' Harkins. However, after only one class, one learns that:1. The instructor does not teach the classes. The classes are taught by uncertified students. This is both unsafe, and an absolute 'bait and switch'.2. Though you will be told when you sign the contract that you can get out whenever you want, this is not true. Even after 1 class they will try to get you to pay up for the entire 18 month contract ($2600.00 appx). They have a 'no refunds' policy, and try to collect money for services they sold based on outright lies.3. There is no record of Formal education for Mr. Harkins that I can find. He is also not certified with any of the major martial arts associations. I called and checked up on every association and school he listed on his 'Linked-In' professional public profile. You can do it too. Don't take my word for it, go to www.linkedin.com and call and check up on what he has listed under 'Honors' and 'Education'. It won't take much research to realize this guy is a con artist, and not even really a clever liar. Read some of his rambling diatribes on www.wujidomartialarts.com. My 12 year old niece can write better than him. There is no way he has earned any advanced degree, especially in 'Martial Arts Philosophy'. I can't even find a single college that offers that degree! A freshman philosophy student would be able to tear him up about the psychobabble he posts in his 'Open Letter from Dr. Harkins'. Oh, yeah, this 'PhD' has not published ANYTHING. Suspicious yet?4. He does not teach kung-fu. He uses inaccurate methods, vocabulary, techniques, and even improper uniforms. It's like he watched karate kid and Top Gun, then combined some bastardized military ideas with some messed up martial arts instructional videos. His "instructors" (student teachers) even taught me 'Horse Stance' wrong, with my fingernails against my thighs, not facing out. They will also teach you a made up 'Tiger Stance' that is totally ineffective and does not exist in the Kung Fu system. Also, they will show you a retarded hissing cat pose that is utterly worthless and just plain silly unless you want to make someone giggle to death. You will be hissing and horsing around by the time you leave! I got suspicious after I went home and tried to look up these insane forms. Then I visited a few real Sifus who all agreed this was not Kung-Fu, but a made up system of Crap-Fu.5. There are over 10 better business bureau complaints about this man in the past year. That is more than any other business his size in the area. He has no credentials, and tries to lock people into a contract based on false promises and lies. He breaches the contract before you even sign it by lying about his credentials and not even being present at class. Do not pay him.6. Do not be fooled by his induction into the Martial Arts hall of fame. Anyone can pay $179.00 to be inducted.7. He is not respected in the Martial arts community. Just call around, or read some of the martial arts chat forums.8. Nothing I have said here is rhetoric. I based all of my facts on things you can verify for yourself. I have nothing to gain by exposing this man, except knowing that I am preventing innocent consumers from being taken advantage of.9. They will tell you he trained in China for years. Ask him who he trained under, and if you can have their contact information. He will throw you out of the office (if you get the illustrious privilege of talking to him, and not Andy). You tell me, would a credible grand master act in such a way? The Chinese system is all about self control, honor, and respect. Just read some of his replies on "Rip off report" and watch as he debases himself with his unprofessional language. I suspect this positive reply from "Presence" below was actually written by the crook himself.

I was a student at the Wujido for several years. It was by far the most superior tai chi class I ever attended. I took several classes in the late 80's and early 90's at another school I do not wish to name, but what I received there was as inferior as you could get. I kept taking classes there because there was no other place to go during those years, and I was hungry to learn the art...whateverstyle was taught. My first master in the 80's was genuinely a greatmaster of the art, but sadly left way before I could learn much from him. So, years down the road I found the Wujido, and though I may not have agreed with certain aspects of the school or the master, I got every bit of what I paid for. And I continue to have the benefits I was told I would have as long as I continue the practice. It was tough, but every time I thought I was too tired for class and showed up anyway, I left completely revitalized and balanced. Even my friends would comment on it in amazement.What I learned there on top of tai chi and chi gung was commitment. As long as I dedicate myself to it, it will give methe results I was promised. I also took a class at one of the community colleges recently, and my teacher there overcame aparalyzing accident she had had many years ago through tai chiand chi gung. Her example emphasized the need for commitmentagain to me and what can be achieved through it.So, in response to some of the unfair reveiws I just read about this school, I had to add my own. Truthfully, in the end I wasn't ashappy there as I was at the beginning, but everything changes, and I just wasn't willing to change with it. However, it doesn't changethe fact that Dr. Harkins is an amazing grandmaster of many martial arts and practices and has striven for mastery in all that he has pursued. My personal opinion (particularly towards people who didn't bother to go to class and were appalled by his contractualagreements) is that they have nothing to base their grievances on.I suggest one commit oneself first to a practice, learn it, and then form an opinion. I was terrified when I started classes at the Wujido, but once Iovercame my fear, I gained more than I ever could have imagined.What was promised was delivered (and by the way, before I tookhis class I went to China and studied medical chi gung with awell-known Chinese doctor), so I feel that I have had enough exposure to other teachers and teachings to assess the gain I received here..

I just saw these reviews and had to reply. I have trained here for years, and it is the best school I have ever been to. It's hard work but a lot of fun. I am stronger and more confident in my ability to protect myself than I have ever been. This place is serious about what they do. They have strict rules and it is very good for discipline. I must admit, I had a bit of difficulty with it at first but now I understand its purpose.
These negative posts on here must be from people who never really came to class or just made them up. I noticed the first three posts were all on the same date. Same person maybe?
I think this place is great. And for anyone intersted you should go check it out. I think they will let you even try a lesson for free.

I just saw these reviews and had to reply. I have trained here for years, and it is the best school I have ever been to. It's hard work but a lot of fun. I am stronger and more confident in my ability to protect myself than I have ever been. This place is serious about what they do. They have strict rules and it is very good for discipline. I must admit, I had a bit of difficulty with it at first but now I understand its purpose.

I just joined this school a few months ago and love it!
This is by far the best work out I have ever experienced. They really care about the students. I am only a white belt, and in one of my first classes, the head master himself came in and made sure I was doing everything right. I am really sore after class, but can't wait to go back!

I am confused about the reviews on this page.

The cost of the programs vary and are less than some schools and more than others. I have noticed the schools that are cheaper tend to go out of business in a very short time. I have also noticed that the Wujido Institute is the price leader in the area.

Whatever Wujido charges the other schools quickly charge the same.
So there is very little difference in fees of the schools.

As for quality, since I have seen black belt after black belt from other schools easily defeated by very low ranked orange and yellow belts, it is hard for me to understand the idea that they are the worst.

I would speculate that they are far closer to the very best.

They are different, I will grant you that. They don't seem at all interested in following the crowd.

They have a very strict etiquette and I noticed that arrogant students have a problem with being required to show respect to others.They are no nonsense about martial arts and business and they don't seem to be impressed at all if a person comes in with a chip on their shoulder. As often happens when there is an environment of such arrogant stupidity in martial arts community.

All you have to do is look at the UFC and MMA types to see where martial arts is heading.

But here is the kicker, these same guys get their butts handed to them in Wujido, I have never seen a school that can so easily handle and defeat these types. I'd say that is superior in my view. If you can do that and still teach mom and pop and little johnny without injuries and in an environment of compassion and respect...well they got my vote.

I have been all around and seen a lot of things, and Wujido is totally unique.

They teach very old traditional art but without being stuffy or overly "traditional" about their approach.

They are a modern school.

I remember one student quit because the teacher did not use "Chinese" names for stances. Therefore it was not traditional. He then went to a school taught by a vietnamese teacher who claimed to teach a 4000 year old shaolin kung fu. But Shaolin is only has about 1200 years history! I think the MA world has a lot of problems but I don't think criticizing Wujido is the answer.

I am sure some people might have a complaint or two about them, but these reviews are ridiculous.I would expect that maybe someone owes the school money, or maybe they started a fight and were put down quickly.

I know the school does not tolerate a trouble maker and is very severe if someone comes in to pick a fight. That person very quickly gets his tail handed to him.

Wujido is the safest place I can imagine to train, they really protect their students, while at the same time teach them traditional Gong Fu art in a way that we Americans can appreciate and understand.
