I've read many reviews and know a few things for sure:
1. My children are the most important thiing in the world to me
2. Paul Hagan IS a registered sex offender (http://www.mipsor.state.mi.us/PSORSearchDetails.asp x?oid=8555629)
3. There are quality several gymnastic centers in the Grand Rapids area...why woould I go here?

All gossip and here-say aside I'd most centainly not take this gamble when it comes to my kids. I'd also like to add that I would never go into this gym and ask this guy his story...I think that the state registry tells me everything I need to know. Those who choose to talk to him are using time and energy listening to a story from one prespective, that of a convicted man....do what you will, but the choice seems clear to me. Wish I had known sooner and hadn't taken my children here ever!

Even thought the place needs some updating, manager Stacy is working very hard to improve the club. He is recruiting younger members. Everytime I have gone to the Diplomat, I have had a good time.

The head instructor Rick is full of it. He does not have an accredited Black belt in Taekwondo. He can't even spell Taekwondo on his website. Rick also does not have a phd in Martial arts, He bought a certificate from the martial arts hall of fame who will give anyone a certificate saying whatever they want for the right price.

Horrible experience on Saturday night Open Gym. Many close calls with too many kids running around. An accident waiting to happen! One girl ...

As a former employee I happen to know Paul Hagan and his family quite well. Paul is definitely not a trustworthy around children and his wife knows it but sticks up for him anyway. Toward the end of my employment with him he kept talking about girls in and their body parts in very inappropriate suggestive ways. He is certainly still a threat to kids. I quit because of it. And when I did he told all the parents that I wasn't safe around their kids. He does this to many of his former coaches and employees.

fyi - The owner, PAUL HAGAN, was convicted of molesting a 13 yr old gymnast when he was 29 yrs old. He is on the Michigan S e x Offender registry. Now he manages the gym and found a loop hole in the system by allowing his wife to own the gym. I know the victim and several former employees. I am begging you all as parents to find another gym. This man is seriously ill and will strike again. His wife is crazy to stay married to him after what he did to that poor gymnast. PEOPLE - do your homework before you send your kids off to this place. PAUL HAGAN - registered s e x offender. Do you want him near your kids?

I have attended The Diplomat Club many times and find the staff friendly, for the most part. The building needs repairs, as it is old and not kept up very good, but The Diplomat Club is the best place around.
