Is this a McDojo?

So I have a renewed interested in Martial Arts and finally decided to take the step to look up local ones. I want to learn Kyokushin Karate and when looking it up in my area the one that seemed the most legitimate is this https://www.padrondojo.com/home

Problem is that it doesn't do Kyokushin but something called "SEIREIKAI KARATE" which is "based on the styles of Kyokushin, Oyama Karate, Shoto, and Seido Karate fused with Judo". When I look this up online all I get are links to the site for the dojo. It seems to be something the owner of the dojo, who seems to be a legitimate martial artist, has come up with himself.

Again my question is, is this a McDojo? Is there any point in learning from this dojo if it doesn't use a more "official" martial art? I literally just want to learn Kyokushin and even if this is a mix of it, and the site even says they used to purely teach that, I feel like I won't get the full Kyokushin experience.
