After some difficulty and with the assistance of Ms. Rodness, EFC cancelled my contract. I would probably sign my son up again for lessons at Rodness but only if I did not have to sign the EFC contract. --["Users/ChrisBowlus"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rodness Martial Arts Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Rodness_Martial_Arts_Center2011-10-24 14:37:09ChrisBowlus <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rodness Martial Arts Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 76: </td> <td> Line 76: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- My experience was similar to that of billclark.

An extra bonus was that they gave our family a discounted rate that was similar to the one we were paying at the other school. The only issue we had with Rodness was the billing procedures that were not clearly defined at the time we signed the paperwork. Mrs. Rodness said that she had a book-keeping service to help her keep track of all the students payments. We found out later, after my husband was bumped into a lower paying position at work that EFC (Educational Funding Company in Chevy Chase Maryland) wasn't a book-keeping service at all. EFC is a credit-collections company and the parent/student pays the 'loan' back every month until the debt is paid in full.

They gained a lot of self-confidence, and enjoyed their accomplishments - being tested every couple of months to achieve the next color belt was a challenge they looked forward to. I really appreciate their family atmosphere and professionalism. The instructors were kind and patient, and made the extra effort to give them personalized attention. A very positive experience which I would recommend to anyone. We also signed an annual contract as it was a discounted monthly price to do so, and I'm glad we did. It really gave our kids some consistency in a year round activity. And, I appreciated the flexible schedule of classes - if we missed one day, we could always go the next etc. We renewed 4 times, and it automatically cancelled when we didn't renew after the contract date expired. Our kids have fond memories of their experience and talk about taking lessons there again someday when they get older. --["Users/MaryAnnLiu"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rodness Martial Arts Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Rodness_Martial_Arts_Center2010-10-29 14:13:36WesHardakerMoved comment from the talk page (it was about the place; not the page) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rodness Martial Arts Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 70: </td> <td> Line 70: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-10-29 07:15:04'' [[nbsp]] RMAC had good instruction and a good atmosphere.<br> + The big issue is the Educational Financing Company. They are a collections agency based in Chevy Chase, Md. The contract will allow them to remove money from your bank account without your approval. If you get laid off, it is hard to get the contract cancelled (virtually impossible actually). If you relocate, it is hard to get the contract cancelled (you need to provide utility bills and other proof you have moved etc). You may end up having spurious charges against your account (including late charges which accumulate rapidly), and may receive multiple dunning letters from their office. Avoid signing the contract with EFC! Encourage RMAC to get another finance company instead of EFC. EFC has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau for a good reason. --["Users/GeorgeCrombie"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rodness Martial Arts Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Rodness_Martial_Arts_Center2010-10-29 12:10:36melodycrombieComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rodness Martial Arts Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 68: </td> <td> Line 68: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-10-29 13:10:36'' [[nbsp]] We came to Rodness Martial Arts from another Karate studio in Davis (after my kids were not promoted beyond white belt after five months of instruction) and we were very pleased with the instruction and promotion procedures at Rodness.

I can't directly comment on the instruction, since it was my son who attended - the problem is with the way Rodness does business. My son had health issues that we knew might jeopardize his ability to continue taking classes. We were reluctant to sign the one-year agreement for that reason, and my wife said so to Mrs. Rodness, who assured my wife that there would not be a problem if my son became too ill to continue. Our mistake was that we didn't get the specifics of this written down and signed - we thought that she would honor her word.<br> + <br> + It became obvious by February of this year that my son wouldn't be able to continue. We informed Mrs. Rodness of this; the next contact we had was from "Educational Funding Company," Rodness' collection agency. This was in the form of a puzzling - and somewhat threatening - letter, saying that we had signed a contract, and that if we didn't want additional fees charged, we should contact them right away. The letter had *no* reference to Rodness, or to my son, or to anything that would give me a clue who they were or what they were talking about. An internet search revealed that they're a collection agency for martial arts schools; that was how I figured out that it had something to do with Rodness.<br> + <br> + From this point forward, Mrs. Rodness took no responsibility for the matter; she referred everything to EFC. EFC, for their part, simply dawdled while continuing to charge my credit card the full monthly fee.<br> + <br> + I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, which Rodness did not see fit even to respond to.<br> + <br> + If you are contemplating signing a contract with Rodness, I would highly recommend that you do an internet search on the words "Educational Funding Company complaints." Also check EFC's Better Business Bureau rating. I am by no means the only one who has had similar problems. It probably goes without saying, but I would also recommend that you read the contract *extremely* carefully before signing it, and make sure that you are *completely* comfortable with *all* of the terms. You can be sure that, no matter what reassuring words anyone might say to you at the time you sign, you'll be held to the absolute letter of the contract no matter what. Note that the contract specifically says that none of its terms can be overridden verbally. It's clearly more important to this business to say whatever it takes to get someone to sign on the dotted line, than to conduct themselves with integrity.<br> + --["Users/billclark"]<br> + ------</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rodness Martial Arts Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Rodness_Martial_Arts_Center2010-05-13 15:31:51billclark <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rodness Martial Arts Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 56: </td> <td> Line 56: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ''2010-05-13 16:30:00''</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 57: </td> <td> Line 58: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Needless to say, I don't agree.

Retracting my prior comment, here’s a different remark in its stead, consisting of examples of how they follow the five TKD tenets:<br> - Courtesy: Everyone is polite (or at least friendly, as there is some teasing between friends), everyone is expected to be. Part of their procedure is to inquire if anyone has any injuries that would affect ability to participate (it would be discourteous to force someone to do something they can’t).<br> - Integrity: They don’t put on false airs and are very enthusiastic about what they do (which is why they do it).<br> - Perseverance: They try to help students work on their individual needs, especially to prepare to advance in belt level.<br> - Self-Control: A specific example: for sparring, they try to pair up the less experienced with the more experienced so that the less experienced won’t injure each other on accident. Being a family-oriented business, the whole system’s set up to do as little bodily harm as possible.<br> - Indomitable Spirit: One time, when a more advanced student noticed my strange attitude, she talked to me about it, saying that in this school, if you’re here, you should make the best of it, no matter how you’re feeling (in other words, she was telling me to overcome my issues). She demonstrated what they were trying to teach.<br> - These contributed to my learning experience.<br> - And as far as pricing goes, it’s competitive in comparison to other TKD locations where my friends have participated. --["Users/RebekahLee"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-05-26 18:42:58'' [[nbsp]] Our experience with Rodness Martial Arts was disappointing. I can't directly comment on the instruction, since it was my son who attended - the problem is with the way Rodness does business. My son had health issues that we knew might jeopardize his ability to continue taking classes. We were reluctant to sign the one-year agreement for that reason, and my wife said so to Mrs. Rodness, who assured my wife that there would not be a problem if my son became too ill to continue.

The letter had *no* reference to Rodness, or to my son, or to anything that would give me a clue who they were or what they were talking about. An internet search revealed that they're a collection agency for martial arts schools; that was how I figured out that it had something to do with Rodness.<br> - <br> - From this point forward, Mrs. Rodness took no responsibility for the matter; she referred everything to EFC.

Part of their procedure is to inquire if anyone has any injuries that would affect ability to participate (it would be discourteous to force someone to do something they can’t).<br> + Integrity: They don’t put on false airs and are very enthusiastic about what they do (which is why they do it).<br> + Perseverance: They try to help students work on their individual needs, especially to prepare to advance in belt level.<br> + Self-Control: A specific example: for sparring, they try to pair up the less experienced with the more experienced so that the less experienced won’t injure each other on accident. Being a family-oriented business, the whole system’s set up to do as little bodily harm as possible.<br> + Indomitable Spirit: One time, when a more advanced student noticed my strange attitude, she talked to me about it, saying that in this school, if you’re here, you should make the best of it, no matter how you’re feeling (in other words, she was telling me to overcome my issues). She demonstrated what they were trying to teach.<br> + These contributed to my learning experience.<br> + And as far as pricing goes, it’s competitive in comparison to other TKD locations where my friends have participated.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Rodness Martial Arts Centerhttp://daviswiki.org/Rodness_Martial_Arts_Center2008-09-23 20:47:24WesHardakerindenting <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Rodness Martial Arts Center<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 48: </td> <td> Line 48: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> <span>------<br> -</span> ''2008-09-23 21:47:08'' [[nbsp]] Nope.
