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.

C S.
Everyone was so very friendly. Looking around for where we needed to go we had students stopping to ask if we needed help. Not students working but on their way to class. Staff was friendly and really acted like they wanted to help. Very pleased.

Fabulous. Still with him. Getting better each day. I came in knowing absolutely nothing about boxing, with a bit of trauma to boot, and I'm having a wonderful time.
