Oz says, "Motivating, loving, caring. My son was so hesitant at the beginning, because of Solomon's professional approach, now he can't wait for the next class. He has more discipline and more self-confidence. I think the professionalism comes from Solomon's PE teacher background. I strongly suggest him as a coach to every caring parent. " 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.

Reviews for Missouri City karate classes

Recent success stories from people in the Missouri City area.

Coach Solomon has been absolutely phenomenal! I am writing this as someone who is an amateur/intermediate boxer. When I first started I knew nothing about boxing and now over nearly a year later there has been phenomenal improvement since that time. I had a chance to work with Coach Solomon since last June and have been working with him ever since. He has been teaching me how to box as well as physical fitness training. It has been an awesome experience both physically, mentally, Physically I have lost 35 pounds, my body has gotten more fit than it has been in a decade. While on the other hand mentally my confidence and sense of self has greatly improved. Coach Solomon does an awesome job at teaching you how to box, exercise, and keep track of you one on one. He will send out weekly texts that tell you what you need to work on when you are not meeting. The boxing style itself is very different from the style that is taught here in the States. He teaches a very European style of boxing which gives you a great deal of variation when boxing with local opponents. The first few weeks you work on footwork, then move on over to other aspects such as: -Jabs -Right Straight -Uppercuts -Hooks (Left and Right) -Combinations -Endurance You will be during endurance training, agility training, and tactic training as well (How to counter an aggressive opponent, etc). Overall, Coach Solomon is perhaps the best trainer in the city of Houston by far. I've gone to many of the gyms in the area after starting with Coach Solomon and none of them offer the training and personal coaching that he will offer you.

Parker is knowledgeable but more importantly knows how to talk to the kids and help them work through real life difficult situations that they go through at school and sports. He has helped not only with technical skills and decision making but also with confidence and conflict resolution. Highly recommend!
