Priscilla L. says, "Working with Shidosha has been an absolute honor and joy. If there were any questions or concerns, he was always there to help with no judgment. No matter the time of day, he was eager to see me succeed, which in my opinion is the best part of his training. Beyond performances, he strives for women to be able to protect themselves against violence. I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to learn this sacred martial arts, but most importantly, to have a very kind mentor such as Shidosha." Read more

Daniel T. says, "Our philosophy and principals of self defense are in agreement. Due to some previously scheduled surgery I only just attended my first private lesson. The facility is excellent, the breadth of training available is ample, and the techniques concentrate on complementing the body's natural reaction to sudden threat stimulus and concentrate on gross motor skills rather than complex techniques. This approach reduces reaction time vis a vis Hicks law and the OODA loop. I look forward to my next session. These skills can be learned by all, regardless of age, infirmity, or prior skill sets."

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.

Both my husband & I started Self Defense lessons with Coach Justin; from the moment I walked in I felt comfortable around him. In the first lesson I went home feeling so much better. He is able to fit in a ton of information in one hour. He teaches you real life situations. We're very pleased with everything he has offered us & has taught us. I wouldn't chose a different instructor even if I could. I can't wait to see how far both my husband & I can go. Thank you Coach Justin for teaching us & continuing to teach us.

Tino has forgotten more boxing wisdom and skill then I will ever learn. He’s quick to correct when you’re wrong and even quicker to praise when doing it right. He will push you to find what you didn’t even know you had inside you. Highly recommend.
