Ida A. says, "My 2 young boys (now 11 and 8) have been working with Daria for over a year now. They went from not knowing how to guard their faces to winning PBSC matches! What I love most is my kids are always excited about the different teaching methods. They are never bored and happy to be learning more and more. She also works on plyometric techniques to build speed and agility. I myself did some self-defense/boxing classes with her as well. It was a great workout and really helped me out. I highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in working out with someone who makes every class fun and full of activities." 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.

Why take karate classes?

Karate classes provide a variety of benefits for both children and adults:

  • Increases confidence and self-discipline
  • Improves strength, endurance, and flexibility
  • Teaches goal-setting and perseverance
  • Improves focus and concentration
  • Better balance and coordination
  • Improves cardio health and stamina
  • Improves social skills and teamwork
  • Teaches self-defense skills

How long are karate classes?

Kids' karate classes are typically 30 to 60 minutes long, depending on the kids' age. Adult karate classes range from 1 to 2 hours in length.

Does karate have weight classes?

Yes, karate has weight classes categorized by age and gender. The World Karate Federation (WKF) recognizes five weight classes in competition, while the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognizes three weight classes:

  • Men – up to 67 kg
  • Men – 67.1 kg to 75 kg
  • Men – over 75 kg

  • Women – 55.1 kg to 61 kg

Where to find karate classes near me?

  • Research the instructors' competition record and reputation.
  • Read dojo and instructor reviews on Lessons and Google.

  • Visit the dojo in person to confirm it is clean and well-maintained and the staff is professional.
  • Take advantage of their free trial class to ensure the school is a good fit for you.
  • Get a copy of the membership contract in writing before making any payments.

I've been training with Vincent for a few years now, and it's always been a great experience. Vincent is a really effective teacher. He always knows how to explain or demonstrate techniques so that they make sense. And I appreciate the way that he manages to challenge me while building foundational skills.

This course was a game changer for me! 1 in 3 American women experience domestic violence, in their lifetimes. This is a shocking statistic! As a survivor of domestic abuse, I had gone to therapy to address the emotional scars, but it had never occurred to me to take a self-defense course and learn how to fight back. Elliott encouraged me to give it a try, and I'm so glad I did! It was empowering to discover that I am equipped to defend myself, effectively, in the face of an attack, without any special equipment, at my current weight and fitness level! The course required 4 hours of time and a modest fee. The results were priceless! Every woman in American needs this information!

I have trained with Coach Akkim and I cannot say enough good things about my experience. From the very first class, I knew that I had found a coach who was not only skilled and knowledgeable, but also incredibly passionate about teaching martial arts. In addition to being an excellent teacher. Coach Akkim is also a talented martial artist in their own right. He has a deep understanding of the techniques and principles of boxing and MMA, and he is always eager to share their knowledge and expertise with you. Overall, I would highly recommend 2020 MMA & Fighter to anyone who is interested in learning martial arts. Whether you are looking to get in shape, learn self-defense, or simply have fun while learning a new skill.
