5 years MMA training experience 7 years weightlifting experience ISSA certified PT During the summer of 2017, Flow Pro Fitness founder, Kyler Krueger found himself on a journey of self-discovery. Sick of monotony and yearning to explore the world outside of his hometown, the journey of a lifetime began with a brief Google search. That search, which started with “mixed martial arts camps” led him to Facebook, a new connection, and eventually; a plane ticket to Thailand where he settled briefly and was immersed in the world of mixed martial arts.

I am a fun and energetic individual with a passion for the skill of striking. I possess a decade of training between kickboxing and boxing and have competed on the local circuit. I have 5+ years of coaching/teaching experience and in that time, have taught many people who not only range in skill level, but age as well. Beginner to advanced, young or old, short and tall - I have worked with all. Here's some things I can pretty much guarantee, as long as you apply yourself: You will break a sweat, you will learn something and you will have a good time! You don't need to work towards stepping into a ring either. Boxing and kickboxing, in general...

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 Kirkland karate classes

Recent success stories from people in the Kirkland area.
Jon W.
I've been training with Belton for over 8 years - and study strength training, and martial arts during our private training sessions. He is incredibly knowledgeable and always strives to improve his skills so that he can help his students to continue to improve. He is truly a teacher who listens to his students, and helps them to realize their potential both physically and mentally. His background and experience is immense, and he brings together many disciplines as well as physical movement, physical health, nutrition, proper strength training techniques, Z-Health, NSI, Balintawak, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Would highly recommend Belton!
