Carleton H. says, "I was a little nervous initially about attending classes (at any dojo), as someone with no previous Martial Arts experience, and being a little on the older side, and not in great shape by any means... Sensei Werth, however, was super kind and very encouraging in our initial conversations; which is what convinced me to try Main Street Martial Arts above any other dojo. I was very impressed with Sensei Werth upon meeting in person for my first class. The class was physically challenging for me in my current state; but Sensei again, was so kind, encouraging, and supportive. I felt very welcomed and included by him and the other students. The dojo itself is very clean and well kept. You simply cannot find better people. It is clear that Sensei and staff pour their hearts and souls into the dojo. I am continuing on my journey here at Main Street Martial Arts, and I am excited for our future." Read more

Nicole L. says, "An amazing coach who continuously inspires you to be the best version of yourself. I became legally disabled in 8/2021. I have the permanent placard to prove it. Initially, I was informed by my Neurologist that I would likely not regain much function in my left leg despite undergoing a 5hr surgical procedure on my L-spine. And since I plateaued after having completing nearly 2 yrs of Physical therapy, I was formally discharged. Sadly, I still had difficulty climbing stairs and maintaining my balance. Falls were second nature. And although I had lost a substantial amount of weight, I needed to lose more. In the three months that I've been training with Vlad, I've lost 35LB. More importantly, I am able to climb stairs with confidence and, have regained more balance and strength in my left leg just after 3 months of training. This is significantly more than my gains with 2 years of Physical therapy. I am thankful for my therapists but I clearly wasn't ready to be "discharged". I'm a clinician (Hematology/Oncology) of 20+ years so I don't liberally put my health in just anyone's hands. Vlad is an amazing athlete, coach and mentor. I am privileged to have met him as I learned so much. I encourage you to reach out to him. Working out can be rigorous and challenging but, it can be fun! If you sign with him, be prepared to work. And if you bring the stew 🍲, he'll bring the heat 🔥. ❤️" Read more

Building and connecting with people and assisting clients to reach their personal fitness goals, along with teaching the disciplines and skills needed to perform the basic fundamentals of boxing training and fitness. I often assit people in achieving their goals and or dreams of either success in boxing or fitness. So that's what I enjoy most about what I do. It's building a network with people as well as helping people see their potential and achieve their highest potential through fitness or boxing. That's what is so great because it's such a huge demand in the fitness industry and people really enjoy boxing and they don't have to fight in

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.

Karate classes provide a variety of benefits for both children and adults:

  • Increases confidence and self-discipline

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.

This guy always will go the extra miles to help you achieve your goals, there’s not one day you won’t get your money worth. If you don’t then you’re slacking. Regardless you’ll always have a positive outcome like discipline with timing, gain confidence as you fight for your health back, stamina, strength, learn the art of boxing and Most importantly family. with that being said choose biosse fitness where there’s more to gain than to lose.
