Robin K. says, "I'm excited to be writing about my experiences at Rick Wong's Chinese Martial Arts Center. Classes focus on personal improvement in a welcoming and supportive environment. In my adult class, there is a wide range of ages, fitness, experience, and abilities. Students have included extremely fit people in their 20s up to and including elderly or impaired people in their 80s. Rick's strong understanding of the body encourages good practice and minimizes the chance of injury. As a large-ish middle-aged woman, I find the content of classes are challenging but definitely achievable. Rick creates an environment that fosters learning, is non-competitive and non-toxic. Other students are encouraging and supportive. Rick is a kind and patient teacher who works well with students of all levels. More experienced students will recognize and appreciate Rick's depth of knowledge, while beginners can rest assured that they will be welcomed and treated respectfully. Whether you're a complete novice who is curious about Tai Chi or an experienced practitioner, Rick has a lot to offer. " Read more

I was 9-10 yrs old when i experienced civil war. 18 when i start trained in martial arts with a pioneer and former special forces coach. Same time i started deeply my studies in philosophy. One sentence that sticked on me was that of Bruce Lee who said: "Do not fear someon that does 1000 maneuvers, but someone that does one maneuver for 1000 times".

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

  • 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.

Reviews for Malden karate classes

Recent success stories from people in the Malden area.
Carole C.
I was curious about tai chi, but wasn’t even sure what it was. I had heard that it was good for flexibility, balance, strength and relaxation. With more than a little nervousness and self-consciousness, I attended one of Rick Wong’s beginner classes. I was immediately welcomed into the group. After some stretching and warming up, Rick had us begin with very simple movements that he both demonstrated and explained. Every week we built on what we had practiced, and within a few months, we had learned a complete form. In addition to being a martial arts master, Rick is a practicing physical therapist who understands how the body moves. Not only is Rick a very knowledgeable teacher, he is very patient and kind. He never puts anyone on the spot, and he provides a lot of helpful information, including very useful explanations of the martial arts origins of various movements. Rick has many long-time students whose loyalty is a testament to his teaching ability, friendly demeanor and good humor. I highly recommend Rick Wong’s tai chi classes!
