Complaint / review text:
First impressions can be misleading. Joslin's East West Karate a contradiction of the values it teaches its students. The first "free lesson" is an aggressive sales pitch, feels like you're buying a time share. You get pressured into a contract, which is not presented in an honest manner - our instructor called it a release form and said that it was only in case we got injured - not the case at all! Once you sign, your billing is turned over to a 3rd party (Educational Fund Company - Google them, they are shady), out of state collection agency. If you have any questions or concerns, you get volleyed back and forth. Joslin's misrepresents information in CONTRACTS, steals money from the sick and the poor. I have developed a chronic illness and my husband has been laid off from his job - we took these concerns to our "FRIENDS" at Joslin's, and Mr. Ron Joslin responded with hostility, physically threatening my husband who was very polite and honest. Do not enter into a contract with Joslin's! They represent themselves as a family organization with integrity, but they are dishonest.
