Aaron S. says, "My first training was cool, we went over some wrestling offense and defense moves, then did some live sparring and he taught me a lot of technical moves that seem like will work in real life. My second session went over conditioning and more boxing practice. So far I like what he’s teaching me, he’s a cool guy and pushes me to keep going even though I’m tired. Overall a good coach. Thanks Frank! " Read more

Mike R. says, "If you have been on the fence about starting your fitness goals because you lack motivation or don’t know where to start, I highly recommend starting with Steve. Since I’ve started I’ve left feeling great after each session, motivated for the next one and am very happy with the growth in my arms and moving my belt more than a few notches in instead of out. There is nothing like the feeling of having someone who guides you and holds you accountable. Thanks Steve for getting me motivated !!" Read more

Your karate questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do karate classes cost?

Karate classes cost $100 to $150+ per month on average. Prices depend on the class size, student's age, location, and number of classes per week included in the membership plan. Classes held at community centers typically cost less than those held in professional dojos. Private karate lessons cost $40 to $80 per hour and are tailored to your needs and skill level.

In addition to the class fee, you'll have extra costs for uniforms, belts, and testing fees. A karate uniform—also called a Gi, karategi, or dogi—costs $60 to $120 on average, while belts cost $5 to $20. Some schools include a gi and belt with your first month's tuition. Testing fees vary by school, but beware of schools that charge more than $20 per test.
