Cases like this is probably amongst the last of things the martial arts need. Even if this is one local school, it affects us all.
One parent in this story from Bakersfield, California, expressed her disappointment like this: "It's frustrating because this art is supposed to teach respect and discipline and obviously they have no respect for other people."
Sad, but true.
The kenpo karate school allegedly closed it's doors with nothing more than a two days written notice. Not only that, they were reportedly collecting tuition just days before they cleared out.
"They didn't give us any indication that there was a problem whatsoever," another parent said.
