About our group: Our Aikido group is open and welcoming. New students feel part of the group right away. We talk to each other after each class. Most fun about training. Watching students get that "Ah hah" moment when what they have been learning clicks and begins to make sense. As primary instructor, I've been teaching and training over 13 years.

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.
