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.

Kyle A.
Charles is an amazing trainer, he knows the intricacies of the musculoskeletal system and how it coordinates with different exercises with different weights. He’s not a trainer that will leave you to your own devices and give you an exercise to do and that’s it. Charles takes the time and the focus to place it on your through every rep and movement, he guides you on the focusing of the particular muscle being worked to achieve the highest quality of work done.
