Karate Club Fees

We try to keep our prices as competitive as possible and invest any money we make back into the club. We recently purchased gum shields for all our students and have invested in some new Kumite training equipment.

There are no contracts with our club and we operate a 'pay as you train' policy. We believe this is in your best interests and fosters a responsibility for your own training.

This also means that you will not have to continue to pay us if you decide that karate is not for you, or if you need to take a short break from training due to illness of other commitments.

Here is an article on why contracts should be avoided in a karate club›

Karate Lesson Costs

Your first Lesson is free, after that we have a weekly price.
