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.

It's practically and easily usable the same day you learn especially if you unfortunately have to be in a situation to use it. Besides the physical skill set you have receive the mind set to deal with critical life scares.

Lessons with Dave were awesome! They made me feel more confident and the environment is always great with him! The only reason I didn’t continue taking classes with him is because I had to come back to my home country. Keep up with the good work, Dave!
