WORST KARATE PLACE! MONEY TRAP! I have two kids that went for the D4 Karate / Charlie Lee Karate in Herndon for around 4 years and we had a very painful experience with the Karate in Herndon, especially with the owner, Mr. B. and my kids never got the black belt.
The whole experience has inflicted a long term moral damage to both of my kids. The contract was to get a black belt in 3.5 years.
Mr B ( the owner Danny Bocagno) is a very shrewd business man with no conscience.
My advice for the parents is to NEVER EVER sign a LONG TERM contract. And make sure - whatever Mr B says verbally is on the contract. Mr B is a child psychologist who only knows how to lure the kids to get into the karate and then the parents follows blindly into signing the contract. No matter how tempting his sales deals are - beware of signing the long term contract. He comes with the deal on the fly that - if you have sibling then it will be discounted for 10 or 25% - provided you sign up for the contract now. If you have more than two kids - then do not sign up for all sibling. I know many parents who signed up with 2 kids and they also ended up like us, without the black belt.
Mr B has favorites where he knows he can extract money from the parents, if the money is already paid - then those kids are no longer taught by Mr B himself, but by his assistant who never pays any attention. Mr B picks and choose kids who he wants to teach and sees opportunity to extract more money or prepare for the showcase. This creates a very looky situation and rest of the kids feels very disheartened by his this biased attitude. Since he does not have office administration assistant - most of his times are spent in office doing and conducting business rather than actually teaching the kids - that he is supposed to do. For the last six months - I can count that my kids were taught by Mr B less than 10 times. That too - he picked up only one sibling and always left the other sibling behind - creating a very morally damaging and demotivating experience for the kids. Once the contract got over - he wants to go month to month to extract more money from me and offered to test one kid and leave the other behind. If for the last one year my kids could not get tested what was the guarantee that in next three months they will ever get tested. I chose to drop out and happy that this whole excruciatingly painful experience is over for my kids as well as for us as a parents.
