Carlo C. says, "I was able to take my 1st self-defense course from Max the other day. I must say that the course was very interesting and informative. I learned some valuable skills that can last a lifetime. Max is very knowledgeable in the area of self-defense. I would definitely recommend anyone interested in learning self-defense skills to take a course under Max. Believe or not, just from my 1st class, I am already excited about learning about martial arts. Max is such an awesome teacher and instructor, you will definitely want to do another class under Max. He has deep understanding and love for teaching martial arts. Max wants to see his students grow and excel in area of self- defense." 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?

  • Men – up to 67 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.

What questions should I ask karate schools before joining?

Ask these questions to ensure you join the best karate dojo for you:

  • How much do your classes cost?
  • Do you offer a free trial class?
  • What is your class schedule?
  • How many students do you have?
  • How many students are in a typical class?
  • What should I wear to class?

I'm a father of an 11 year old young man, that has had the honor of learning under a great instructor. I have had a little training years ago. I am also prior service Military. We are happy with the results being learned for health benefits as well as self defense being taught by Troy Logan. The training sessions have people from different backgrounds. Each session that we have attended, have been inclusive of male and female students of various ages. The class seems to meet people where they are. We have noticed people with prior training as well as first time martial arts students. I have even brought guests. The instruction is professional and fun. We look forward to learning and enjoying more sessions to come.
