When searching for a martial arts school for you or your family, please do your research before enrolling in classes, the State of Nebraska does not require a person(s) to have any credentials or certifications before owning/operating a martial arts school. It is highly recommended that the customer view the instructor’s martial art linage and credentials before becoming a student of any school. Prof. Geary has been in business since June 29, 1994 and is the only certified 10th Degree Black Belt (the highest level of Black Belt and Grand Master) Instructor in Nebraska and Iowa.
As of April 18, 2018, there are only seven martial arts schools in Omaha that are members of the Better Business Bureau (BBB), this includes Geary's Kempo Karate, LLC. The BBB does a very thorough investigation before allowing any martial arts school to become a member of their organization. Geary’s Kempo Karate has 36 positive reviews and an A+ rating on the BBB web site with ZERO negative reviews. There is only one customer review for all of the BBB martial arts schools other than Geary's Kempo Karate, and it is a negative one.
Prices for classes at many martial arts schools can be very misleading. Shortly after joining, there may be extra fees or hidden costs that the customer may feel pressured to pay for or add on to their membership. It is easy to add to a membership, but not easy to cancel one. Please read your membership thoroughly and ask questions if there are any concerns. In many cases, martial arts schools in higher rent areas are charging more only to pay their higher overhead costs and offer a convenience to you because of their location, not necessarily for better instruction. Many of these schools throughout the country, including Omaha, are hoping that the customer doesn’t do their research and simply chooses the school down the street. So you should ask yourself before becoming a student or signing up your children, are you looking for quality martial arts instruction or just a convenient location?
