Kathy M. says, "I needed to train for a triathlon. One mile swim. I trained with Chris 2 days a week and I was ready for the race. I came in 3rd place at Escape the Cape triathlon. Chris got me swim ready with challenging workouts in the pool, excellent coaching tips, gave me the tools I needed to swim freestyle efficiently. I became faster, stronger and my endurance was amazing after weeks of training. I highly recommend Chris for your swimming lessons no matter what level you are." 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.
